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).
