Tax and Development: The Link between International Taxation, the Base Erosion Profit Shifting Project and the 2030 Sustainable Development Agenda

United Nations University (Bruges, BE) | 14 January 2019

The workshop addressed the link between international taxation, the Base Erosion and Profit Shifting Project (BEPS), the 2030 Sustainable Development Agenda and the Medium-Term Revenue Strategy (MTRS) concept. During this day, we also elaborated on a reference and evaluation framework for multilateral cooperation on tax and development to strengthen the revenue system of developing countries.

This workshop consisted of an interdisciplinary mix of expertise in tax law, international political economy, global governance and international relations. The aim was to identify a proper framework to find out how the tax and development link can be addressed and evaluated, and how countries and governments could reinforce this link in light of the current and future initiatives in international tax law making.
