dc.description This article, written under the supervision and support of Professor Andre Boraine, is based on a paper delivered on 10 June 2010 at the academic meeting of the 2010 conference of INSOL International held in Dublin, Ireland. en
dc.description.abstract This article argues that, with the global or cross-border nature of many corporate activities, there is an increasing need for a uniform insolvency law approach to the financial distress of a corporation in the Southern African Development Community. In doing so, the article highlights lessons the community may learn from the Insolvency Act of the Organisation for the Harmonization of Business Law in Africa. Emphasis is given to that organization’s success in developing a uniform insolvency act (ie one which is directly applicable in its contracting states). The article also proposes a number of recommendations. en
