Co-organised by the Association for Accountancy & Business Affairs (AABA), City, University of London (CityPERC), and the Tax Justice Network (TJN), this is the latest in an annual event series dating back to 2003. The events bring together researchers, academics, journalists, policy staff of civil society organisations, consultants and professionals, elected politicians and their researchers, government and international organisation officials. The purpose is to facilitate research, open-minded debate and discussion, and to generate ideas and proposals to inform and shape political initiatives and mobilisation.

This year, the conference will be highlighting papers that focus on the following topics:

  • The race to the bottom in tax and financial regulation

    • analysis of the current US corporate tax and other reforms

    • the Brexit tax haven threat, and EU response

    • tax incentives and corporate tax rate competition within regions
  • Feminist perspectives/Gendered analysis on tax justice and its role in social progress

  • Blacklisting of ‘tax havens’ - the evolution of policy approaches, and results

  • Evaluations of international progress since 2008, and the outlook today
