Current Research

Under the supervision of Professor John Linarelli and Dr Orkun Akseli, Shuang’s research focuses on pre-insolvency arrangements for banks from a comparative perspective. The research aims to propose a regulatory framework for bank resolution in dealing with banks before legal determination of insolvency in China. The research engages in a comparative analysis of banking law and institutions in the United States and United Kingdom, with the aim of this comparative analysis in serves as a base or framework for recommending reform in Chinese law. In addition, Chinese law and practice in dealing with troubled banks provides a foundation for establishing suitable pre-insolvency arrangements for China. In this research, the concept, justifications and measures of pre-insolvency arrangements for banks will be clarified, and law and practice in the US, the UK and China in dealing with troubled banks will be examined.
