On Thursday 14 March and Friday 15 March 2024, a conference will bring together researchers, policymakers and civil society from across Europe and beyond, to discuss inequality and the global tax architecture.

Despite a decade of global tax reform,  the current tax rules fail to address inequality both within and between countries. In late 2022, the member states of the United Nations (UN) member states unanimously voted to launch intergovernmental discussions on proposals for a new international framework for tax cooperation under the auspices of the UN.

This two-day conference aims to explore the potential of a UN Tax Convention to:

  • supporting meaningful progress against tax abuse,
  • reducing inequalities within and between countries, and
  • strengthening the ability of states to respond to the climate crisis.

 

Who is organizing this event?

  • European Network on Debt and Development (Eurodad)
  • EU Tax Observatory (EUTO)
  • Global Alliance for Tax Justice (GATJ)
  • ICRICT (Independent Commission for the Reform of International Corporate Taxation)
  • Tax Justice – Europe
  • Tax Justice Network
  • World Inequality Lab

 

Who should attend?

This conference is free to attend to everyone and is likely to be of particular interest to academics, journalists, NGOs and policy makers working in the international tax policy space, or with a focus on inequality and human rights.
