The JRC is hosting a high-level conference “The fiscal and distributional consequences of global tax avoidance and tax evasion” on 27, 28 and 29 September at 14.00 CET (13.30 on 29 September). The conference is organised in partnership with the EU Tax observatory and the Commission department for taxation and customs.
This Science for Policy conference will provide a scientific, policy-oriented analysis of the global tax evasion and tax avoidance as a source of fiscal and distributional predicament.
The conference is structured in three days including five sessions. The first two sessions will introduce the policy prospective and discuss the academic research. The following three sessions will focus on the policy debate dealing with tax morale, novel policy instruments and policy reforms.
The conference will bring together key policy-makers, world leading academics and representatives from the civil society including NGOs and journalists, to foster debates on recent and future research, and discuss policy proposals.
