China SOE Bankruptcies, Foreign Buyers, and Product that Never Arrives

Euler Hermes, the German credit insurance company, recently released its bankruptcy filing projections for 2019 here. The Report states that bankruptcies worldwide increased by 10% in 2018 and it projects an additional 6% increase for 2019. What surprised me is that the increase in bankruptcies worldwide stems almost solely from an increase in formal bankruptcy proceedings in China.

Azari: La demande reconventionnelle devant la Cour internationale de justice

Hadi Azari (Université Kharazmi) has published La demande reconventionnelle devant la Cour internationale de justice (L'Harmattan 2018). Here's the abstract: La demande reconventionnelle est une action en justice ; une conclusion du défendeur qui poursuit des avantages autres que le simple rejet de la prétention du demandeur. Admise dans toutes les juridictions, devant la Cour internationale de Justice, elle présente des caractéristiques particulières que cet essai a pour vocation d'analyser et de mettre en lumière. Selon la jurisprudence, une demande reconventionnelle est une demande autonome et indépendante. Formée par le défendeur, elle est à la fois un moyen de défense et une demande incidente. Pour être recevable, elle doit relever de la compétence de la Cour et entretenir une connexité directe avec la demande principale. Toutefois, la question est de…..
