This is the second volume of a new series on'New Bank Insolvency Law for China and Europe'. The current volume provides a comprehensive analysis of the current EU bank insolvency framework, discusses future developments in the field of EU bank insolvency law, and investigates relevant Dutch, German and English rules and practice. This research has been made possible by the Royal Netherlands Academy of Arts and Sciences, and the Chinese Ministry of Education. In this series, researchers of the China University of Political Science and Law, and Leiden Law School's Hazelhoff Centre for Financial Law addressed the question: how best to achieve a modernized bank insolvency regime for China and the EU? The series takes into account some of the most important developments in international restructuring and insolvency law. The volumes on'New Bank Insolvency Law for China and Europe' therefore present a valuable resource for academics, practitioners and policymakers, and a timely contribution to scholarly and practical discussions about the development of rules that govern the recovery and resolution of banks.
