About the event: How does the debt crisis currently gripping the peripheral countries of the Eurozone differ from the sovereign debt crises experienced by dozens of emerging market countries over the last 30 years? How have the roles of official sector actors,particularly the IMF, changed during this period? And will the techniques used to resolve the Eurozone debt crisis have any similarity to conventional sovereign debt management techniques as these have been developed since the "global" debt crisis began in 1982?
