International insolvency, the subject of this book, is a newly established branch of the study of insolvency, inspired by the phenomenon of cross-border incorporations and the conduct of business in more than one jurisdiction. Omar, a barrister in the UK, analyzes the European approach to this social and commercial phenomenon, with particular focus on the jurisdictional problems posed by cross-border insolvencies. He examines texts that have formed part of the European experience at managing insolvency across frontiers, and looks at insolvency as a phenomenon affecting the formation of the Single Market within the European Community and European Union.
