Abstract

The chapter analyses the scope of protection for creditor claims in international law. This chapter reviews some of the decisions of international courts and tribunals on creditor claims, and indicates general tendencies on the protection of creditor claims in international law. The first part looks at the protection of creditor claims domestically, especially in constitutional law. The second part reviews the historical evolution of creditor protection in international law, while the third part examines the protection of creditor claims before national claims settlement institutions. The fourth, and final chapter, looks at creditor protection in international law, especially under modern investment treaties.

Keywords: creditor protection, insolvency, international law
