'No single-volume publication brings together as many diverse and stimulating perspectives on secured financing law as does this EE Research Handbook. Its great strengths are asking hard questions and recognizing how difficult reform is. Contributors report on what works (and what doesn't), drawing on evidence from legal systems less often studied in this context (e.g., Brazil, Morocco). I cannot imagine a researcher in the field who would not be intrigued by analysis of such issues as access of women to secured financing, constraints Shari ah places on use of security devices, and reasons for Russia's meandering path to modernization.'
- Peter Winship, SMU Dedman School of Law, US
This cutting-edge Handbook presents an overview of research and thinking in the field of secured financing, examining international standards and best practices of secured transactions law reform and its economic impact. Expert contributors explore the breadth and depth of the subject matter across diverse sectors, and illustrate the choices and trade-offs that policy makers face via a number of illuminating case studies.
The book explores groundbreaking research across a comprehensive range of sectors and countries, including new, original analysis of Shari'ah compliant collateral regimes and improved access to finance for women. A diverse group of experts offer cutting-edge points of view as well as case studies from England and Wales, Morocco, Russia and Romania.
The result is a unique and wide-ranging examination of secured transactions reform across the world and a valuable resource for researchers, government and development agencies, banks, and law firms.
