    4th World Bank IFS ODI Tax Conference: Global Tax Equity

    Inequality is one of the global challenges of our times. This phenomenon is increasingly cross-border in nature and suffers from a lack of data. What is the role of fiscal policy in dealing with this challenge, both internationally and domestically? How might new data sources inform the debate?This conference brings together leading researchers and policy makers to discuss recent research on making the tax system more equitable at a global scale, including:

    • Taxation of high-net-worth individuals, including wealth taxation;
    • Tax transparency, beneficial ownership, offshoring and tax havens;
    • Taxes on multinationals and large corporations, including BEPS pillar I and II;
    • Distributional properties of environmental taxation;
    • New forms of measurement (offshore wealth data, profit shifting, environmental tax incidence).
    • OVERVIEW
    Program: The conference will feature a keynote address by Professor Gabriel Zucman, University of California at Berkely, research presentations and academic discussions, and a special session in which policy makers will present policy proposals and receive feedback from academics.Format: The conference will take place in person, with limited remote presentation possibilities for presenters who are unable to travel due to Covid or vaccination-related regulation. Remote participation for attendees not on the program will be facilitated.

    Submission: We invite researchers from both academic and policy institutions to submit a paper (preferable) or an extended abstract of two or more pages to mbreece@worldbank.org (subject “Tax Research Conference”) by July 10, 2022.
