In light of the current situation with the Coronavirus (COVID-19) we have decided to postpone the 2nd World Bank Tax Conference. We are tentatively re-scheduling the conference to late September 2020. We will post an update here as soon as we can. Thank you for understanding.
This conference will bring together leading researchers and policymakers to discuss recent research on taxing personal income and wealth with relevance for developing countries. The conference will feature a keynote address by Wojciech Kopczuk, Professor of Economics and International and Public Affairs at Columbia University, research presentations and academic discussions, and a special session dedicated to shorter presentations of early-stage work. A brainstorming session on potential new projects will facilitate interactions between researchers and policymakers and the testing of innovative research ideas with high policy relevance. A unique feature of the conference will be the blending of frontier academic research with the practical experience of policymakers.
