Global Week invited audiences to learn about new cultures

Members of the Centre for Business and Insolvency Law recently participated in the University's Global Week, held from 2 to 6 March 2015. The initiative was designed as a celebration of the rich cultural diversity within the University and its commitment to internationalisation. Billed as a colourful festival of food, music, dance, cinema and drama, Global Week invited audiences to learn about new cultures and sample new experiences.

As part of the event, three talks were given by Professors David Burdette, Rebecca Parry and Paul Omar on topics connected with the overall theme of internationalisation. Professor Burdette's talk was headlined Crisis, Coups and Disease: A Day in the Life of a World Bank Consultant. It dealt with aspects of his work engaged in law reform initiatives in emerging and developing countries, where unusual experiences are a daily occurrence.

Professor Parry's contribution was billed as Don't let Present Troubles prevent Future Success. It cantered on the life of company directors around the world and how the avoidance of insolvency is a major feature of their daily tasks.

Finally, Professor Omar provided an insight into major banking failures, asking Barings, Lehmans and the Money-go-Round: Why International Insolvency Law Matters?. The talk also provided a historical view of how the development of international banking, a major feature of globalisation, is intimately tied to the development of international insolvency.
