Soft law and international organizations: the example of the OECD

Lunch provided

Join the Global Business Law Institute for a Global Business Wednesday with David Drysdale discussing the role of international organizations in creating soft law. 

Mr. Drysdale is the Head of the Export Credits Division of the Trade and Agriculture Directorate of the OECD. His talk will focus on soft law making through the perspective of his work at the OECD Export Credits Division. 

The OECD Export Credits Division provides a forum for exchanging information on Members’ export credits systems and business activities and for discussing and coordinating national export credits policies relating to good governance issues, such as anti-bribery measures, environmental and social due diligence, and sustainable lending, as well as the financing rules that comprise the Arrangement on Officially Supported Export Credits.

Mr. Drysdale has worked in the field of export credits since 1994 when he joined the Export-Import Bank of the United States, the official American export credit agency. From 2002 until July 2013, he worked at the U.S. Department of the Treasury in the Office of Trade Finance and Investment Negotiations, with his last position as Director. As lead negotiator within the United States government for trade finance and export credit matters, he has a vast and in-depth knowledge of all export credit issues. While Chairman of the OECD Premium Experts Group, he successfully led the negotiations that resulted in the Malzkuhn-Drysdale Package which set forth buyer risk pricing disciplines of the Arrangement on Officially Supported Export Credits.
