Twenty-two years on from a landmark international initiative to overcome the problem of chronic sovereign indebtedness in low-income countries and three years on from the completion of debt relief for all eligible countries under the Heavily Indebted Poor Countries Initiative (HIPC), there are warnings that a new debt crisis is emerging in the developing world. This threat of an incipient third world sovereign debt crisis as we approach the 10th anniversary of the inception of the global financial crisis is indicative of the enduring gaps in the law and governance of sovereign debt financing and exemplifies the failure of systemic reform of the international financial architecture in the wake of cyclical crises. This lecture aims to review the current framework for sovereign financing, in particular, the governing regime for sovereign debt, and situate the contemporary architecture of sovereign financing within the broader framework of postcolonial economic relations between the north and south. The lecture will explore how the normative system of sovereign debt is underpinned by a regime of disciplinary narratives that have shaped the contours of sovereign debt governance and that have sustained the utility of debt as a technology of power in the global economy.
