UPCOMING EVENTS

Ochoa Presents Indiana Democracy Consortium Colloquium

On Thursday, Dec. 6, Professor Christiana Ochoa presents "Proposing an Odious Finance Doctrine as a Deterrent to Despotic Finance," an Indiana Democracy Consortium Colloquium. Ochoa will examine the odious debt doctrine. She posits that there may be valuable lessons to be learned from the odious debt doctrine that apply to other types of transnational financing arrangements, and proposes that an "odious finance" doctrine is the better approach. The Harvard Journal of International Law selected Ochoa's related article, "From Odious Debt to Odious Finance: Avoiding the Externalities of a Functional Odious Debt Doctrine" for an issue forthcoming in early 2008. The event is from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m. in the Faculty Conference Room. For more information contact Brian Shoup, bshoup@indiana.edu.
