A judicial “cookbook” and recipes for international insolvency cooperation by Nicoleta Mirela Năstasie

In 2014, I attended a training programme related to guidelines and best practices for judicial cooperation in cross-border insolvency.

Explaining that in my daily judicial activity I had insufficient time to determine the most appropriate method to transform general guidelines and rules into concrete measures in pending litigations, someone asked me: “What do you want, Judge, a cookbook for insolvency?”

My direct and immediate answer was: “Yes, if a cookbook helps me to find practical solutions and be efficient”.

I have been trying since then to verify if my answer was or was not correct. Nowadays, I am also involved in an EU project in connection to judicial cooperation and I would like to address the same question to practitioners, academics and members of the judiciary. This is the subject I propose as an epic literary work.
