Summary This paper presents a theory of the maturity of international sovereign debt and derives its implications for the reform of the international financial architecture.

The paper presents a welfare analysis of several measures that have been discussed in recent debates, such as the adoption of renegotiation-friendly clauses in debt contracts and the establishment of an international bankruptcy regime for sovereigns
