Tax law and development - an online discussions workshop series


Hosted by:  

Professor Tsilly Dagan, Oxford University Faculty of Law

Professor Yariv Brauner, Levin College of Law, University of Florid

The task of financing for development, mostly with taxes, remains of critical importance to the world, but has fallen off the agenda during the current era of COVID-19. The 2021 Financing for Sustainable Development Report warns that COVID19 could lead to a lost decade for development. At the same time, the Inclusive Framework and Global Forum, together with other international organisations, are working towards a new consensus on international tax.   

This project aims to reinvigorate scholarly analysis of tax law and development, focusing on intersections and challenges of domestic and international tax law in the global context of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), and in the broader institutional context of governing the state, public finance and budgeting for justice and economic development. This series of informal online workshop invites scholars from around the world working on different aspects of tax law, public finance and development to present and participate in discussion.  

This session will focus on Tax, Public Finance and Sustainable Development  and consider key challenges, ideas and approaches to the framework for tax and public finance of the state to achive sustainable development in a global context. This includes approaches to tax and budgeting to deliver equality and sustainable revenues; the relationship between tax, crisis and the state; and issues for tax in the global economy.

We have limited number of places available, if you wish to attend this session, please email Professor Tsilly Dagan
