The Legal Department and the Institute of the International Monetary Fund (IMF) held their ninth biennial seminar for legal advisers of central banks of member countries from May 24 to June 4, 2004. As in previous years, presentations were made by officials of the IMF and other international organizations, officials of central banks and regulatory agencies, representatives of the private sector, lawyers, and scholars. The papers published in this volume are based on these presentations. The views they express by the authors should not be attributed to the IMF or to any institution with which the authors are affiliated.
The seminar covered a broad range of topics, which are reflected in this volume, including activities of the IMF, sovereign debt restructuring, money laundering and the financing of terrorism, financial system and banking supervision, conflicts of interest and market discipline in the financial sector, insolvency, and other issues relating to central banking. Given the widespread electronic availability of treaties, legislation, and other resource materials, appendixes included in this volume are limited to extracts that may not be easily attained otherwise and that will aid readers in their overall understanding of the ideas presented.
I wish to express our gratitude to a number of people for organizing the seminar and for their work on this publication. Roy Baban and Seng Chee Ho of the Legal Department played a key role in the seminar’s preparation and organization. Glenn Gottselig of the Legal Department and Marina Primorac of the External Relations Department provided editorial expertise. Deidre Davis, Luz Lemus, and Olga Penova provided administrative assistance with the seminar, and Sarah Underwood and Duangratai Jayanan were responsible for the composition of the publication.
