Since the introduction of the WHOA (Wet Homologatie Onderhands Akkoord) on January first 2021, the Netherlands has a procedure for debt restructuring based on the consent of a majority of creditors.

These controversial questions are the focus of a publication by Van Galen, Struycken and Heumakers in issue 2021/12 of the Monthly Bulletin of Property Law.
