In particular, the paper analyses such clauses as covenants, events of default, rights to sue and modifications and how they are applied in a sovereign debt restructuring process. It then also discusses the current events faced by the Republic of Argentina under its debt situation and the relationship between those events with the judicial case against the republic being litigated in the courts of New York.
