EU Tax Observatory Lunch Seminar at PSE 2022-23

Event details


Friday June 9th


12:00 pm - 1:00 pm



The increased global mobility of capital and labour poses a number of challenges to national tax systems: intricate global structures to hide personal wealth from the eyes of tax administrators and regulators, conflicts about the international allocation of taxing rights, a fast-evolving international tax policy landscape. The seminar focuses on the topic of taxation in the global economy and aims to bring together international junior and senior researchers working on international taxation, tax avoidance and evasion, tax competition, tax harmonization and related topics. Presentations can be polished papers or work in progress. The aim is to learn from each other and to discuss in a friendly atmosphere.

The seminar takes place at Paris School of Economics and via Zoom.


To register for the zoom transmission of the seminar or if you would like to book a private time slot to meet the speaker, please send an email to Manon Francois specifying which session.
