INSOL Case Studies

The Technical Research Committee agreed to launch this project where research will be carried out on major cross-border cases. The objective of each case study is to give a good insight into significant practical issues that have come up in these cases and to find out what lessons can be learned for the future. The case studies will be presented in a standard format.

There are now six case studies available in this series.
