From 4 to 5 March 2021, the Stichting (Foundation) Bob Wessels Insolvency Law Collection (BWILC) organised the third edition of the PhD Workshop on European and International Insolvency Law. The participants had the chance to be part of an inspiring and interactive two-day virtual workshop.

The presentations covered a broad spectrum of topics, including insolvency and bitcoins, subordination of (affiliated) claims, executory contracts, public policy and the role of the insolvency law practitioner, employee protection in insolvency, as well as discussions about insolvency law from an economics perspective.
