The Insolvency and Bankruptcy Board of India (IBBI) and Indian Institute of Management, Ahmedabad (IIMA) are jointly organising an international conference on insolvency and bankruptcy to promote research and discourse in the field of insolvency and bankruptcy on 30th April 2022 and 1st May 2022.
The Insolvency and Bankruptcy Code, 2016 (Code / IBC) is landmark legislation that has had an exceptional journey, reforming and strengthening the insolvency and bankruptcy regime in India. It has created an environment that encourages entrepreneurship and is conducive to appropriate risk-taking. There is now a growing body of literature that aims to address the gaps in theoretical aspects of insolvency law and its practice and impact on the ground. Deep research can bring together evidence to support policymakers in achieving real-world outcomes. To promote research and discourse in the field of insolvency and bankruptcy, the two-day international research conference held by IBBI and IIMA, calls upon academics & researchers, lawyers, economists, regulators, to submit research proposals. This conference is an opportunity to understand the importance and impact of IBC in its totality through multidisciplinary research papers.
Releasing the Brochure of the conference, Shri Sudhaker Shukla, Whole-time Member, IBBI, mentioned that in an ever-changing scenario, evidence-based research plays a crucial role in policymaking. The IBBI has been at the forefront of promoting research and discussions on the IBC and its institutions. It collates and disseminates large data relating to processes and institutions established under the IBC. It has established research collaborations and signed MoUs with research wings of leading academic institutions and corporates. Advancing the ongoing efforts, the international research conference organised in collaboration with IIMA which houses unparalleled faculties and scholarships will attract wide interest from students and experts in the field of insolvency and bankruptcy. The academic rigour of the papers presented at the conference will offer new insights and analysis that will shape the future course of policymaking. The brochure can be accessed on IBBI’s website.
