This chapter compares six proposals of civil society, financial sector, or academic parentage. The five proposals besides the SDRM that are reviewed include: Christoph Paulus's call for an international model law for sovereign bankruptcy that individual governments would adopt to govern how they would treat their creditors in a crisis; Richard Gitlin's call for a Sovereign Debt Forum to develop an agreed set of ‘best practices’ for negotiations and create an institutional capacity to facilitate such negotiations through mediation and informal adjudication; mediation, more generally, as used in other areas of dispute resolution; the Fair and Transparent Arbitration Process comprising independent ad hoc arbitration panels, as proposed by a number of northern NGOs; and the proposal of groups of southern NGOs and academic authors for an international insolvency arbitration court.

Keywords: sovereign debt workouts; international financial institutions; debt sustainability framework
