Tax Sustainability in an EU and International Context
It is our pleasure to announce that the Group for Research on European and International Taxation (GREIT) will hold its next Conference in Lund, on the 19 and 20 June 2019. The topic of this event will be Tax Sustainability in the EU and International Context, and it will be hosted by the Department of Business Law, School of Economics and Management, Lund University.
The aim of this conference is to bring together researchers focussing on a variety of aspects related to sustainability in an EU and international tax law context to increase the body of knowledge in this field, foster new collaborations and strengthen scientific networks. The main question raised by the speakers who were selected on the basis of a call for papers is to investigate what legal tools exist to foster sustainable taxation in an EU and international context.
The conference is organised around six main themes and panels dealing with the concept of tax sustainability, the use of taxation as a tool to reach sustainability, equality as sustainability goal, BEPS and sustainability goals, environmental taxation and sustainability, and finally, the challenges for tax sustainability. The speakers will present their research which will be discussed in plenum during the conference, where participants will be given an opportunity to ask questions and comment on the issues raised during the presentations. A preliminary programme for the conference is available here.
The number of participants is limited (50) and therefore we kindly ask you to register at the latest on April 26, 2019, by sending a mail to GREIT2019 [at] har [dot] lu [dot] se.
The seminar is free of charge for people with an academic background (students included). The cost for participation for other participants is 3000 SEK.
