25th Annual Conference, 1 – 2 September 2016
Call for Papers
The Tax Research Network is the learned society for tax researchers, practitioner and policy makers in the UK, and has around 350 members from across the world. On the TRN website you can learn more about our activities (http://www.trn.org.uk).
The TRN’s 25th annual conference will be held on 1-2 September 2016 at the University of Roehampton, London. Roehampton is well-situated in one of London’s leafiest corners and overlooks Richmond Park — the largest Royal Park in London. The conference will meet in one of the University’s elegant Georgian mansions, and excellent quality accommodation at low cost is available, adjacent to the venue. (see http://www.roehampton.ac.uk).
Over many years the TRN’s annual conference has provided a vital forum for the presentation and discussion of leading edge tax research. The ever-increasing public debate about taxation, as a result of heightened sensitivities following the recession, provides us with an invaluable opportunity to make a contribution based on rigorous research. The conference remains an exceptionally multidisciplinary event and will particularly interest accountants, lawyers, economists, sociologists, historians and a wide variety of other scholars from the social sciences and humanities.
You are cordially invited to submit a paper for this conference. Whilst there is no specific theme, papers which are well grounded theoretically and/or innovative and interesting empirically are particularly sought.
Proposals for papers must be sent to Professor Rebecca Boden by 29 February 2016. This should take the form of an extended abstract of between 1500 and 2000 words. You will be notified whether or not your paper is accepted by 31 March 2016. Full versions of accepted papers must be submitted by 31 July 2016. Please do not hesitate to contact Rebecca if you have any queries (Rebecca.Boden@Roehampton.ac.uk).
There will be a full registration fee and accommodation charge waiver for one presenter of each paper. The conference will be preceded on 31 August by a workshop for early career researchers and PhD students (details to follow).
We do hope that you will consider submitting an abstract and help to make the 2016 conference a success
Professor Rebecca Boden
Together with a conference committee comprising Malcolm James (University of Wales Institute Cardiff), David Massey (University of Central Lancashire) and Lynne Oats (University of Exeter).
