Repudiation: Generally, refers to use of some power to treat a contract or obligation as having been cancelled. As a credit event in credit derivatives, refers to the use of some sovereign, statutory or contractual powers by a reference entity to repudiate an obligation. The act of such repudiation generally constitutes a credit event, though it is not a failure to pay strictly speaking.
