On my website, in the category ‘Current projects’, mention is made of the project for the ‘American Law Institute’ (ALI), in conjunction with International Insolvency Institute. During the start of this project (‘Principles for Cooperation in International Insolvency Cases’) Ian Fletcher and I gave presentations to an interested audience, at Columbia Law School, New York City, June 14, 2006. My lecture, called: ‘Perspectives on a Principles-based Approach to Transnational Insolvency’, deals mainly with pros and cons of using soft law in international insolvency law. It also contains a taxonomy on topics to address. As I have referred to this lecture in one of my fortcoming articles, written for the event of end March 2007 in Brussels concerning 'Twohundred Years Belgian Commercial Code', it is made available.
