Eurobonds: Legal Design Features
Michael Waibel ()
Review of Law & Economics, 2016, vol. 12, issue 3, 635-657
In light of proposals for Eurobonds, this article explores central legal features of the Eurobond proposals. Section 2 focuses on the development of the law governing sovereign bonds and assesses the potential, but limited role of international law for Eurobonds. Section 3 considers the equal treatment of bondholders, looking at the two potential sources of non-discrimination obligations for sovereign bonds and their relevance to Eurobonds. Section 4 turns to two crucial design features of Eurobonds which existing proposals mostly address only in passing: (i) which legal entity issues Eurobonds; and (ii) what form of debt mutualization Eurobonds involve.
