CBS Law at Copenhagen Business School invites you to submit an abstract for its annual tax conference:

Inequality within  International Taxation 

  • How should concerns about inequality influence the choices that countries make in the design of their international tax laws and regulations?
  • What role do international tax rules play in reducing (or exacerbating) inequalities of income and wealth, and how do concerns such as gender and racial inequalities inform and intersect with economic and political concerns?
  • Can tax rules, for example, allow wealthier countries to help pull poorer countries out of poverty?
  • Will political systems be willing to use tax policy to address the effects of continuing discrimination in employment, housing, and other areas of people’s live?

The conference seeks to bring together researchers who are at the forefront of their respective fields in order to identify, discuss, and perhaps most importantly, to underline future challenges associated with inequality in the international tax context. The conference is in not limited to tax scholars or legal scholars in general but is instead open to all fields that cross into the core of international taxation, including political science, economics, sociology and philosophy.

The conference, which will take place on 14 and 15 September 2020 in Copenhagen, is a unique occasion to discuss these issues in an interdisciplinary research environment accompanied by the expertise of renowned international scholars. We are proud and delighted to announce that the conference will feature the following keynote speakers:

  • Dr. Andrea Martinangeli and Dr. Lisa Windsteiger, both Post-docs in behavioural economics/public economics at the Max Planck Institute for Tax Law and Public Finance (Germany)
  • Professor Mats Tjernberg, Professor in Public Law at the Faculty of Law, Lund University (Sweden)
  • Professor Neil H. Buchanan, James J. Freeland Eminent Scholar Chair in Taxation and Director of Global Scholarly Initiatives at Levin College of Law, University of Florida (USA)
