The International Tax Justice Academy (ITJA) is an annual training programme that TJNA launched in 2014. Under the motto ‘‘Building the next generation of tax justice champions’’, ITJA is designed as a pan African initiative that seeks to inspire, empower and mobilise citizens across Africa through bridging the existing knowledge gap on tax justice in Africa. This week-long key capacity building programme is intended for CSOs, activists trade unions students and other actors interested in tax justice and domestic resource mobilisation in Africa. We believe that for civil society actors to influence change towards fair and just tax systems and stopping the bleeding of African financial resources, would require a combination of passion, knowledge, strategy and collaboration Over the last 4 years over 380 participants have undertaken the training.

ITJA provides an exciting platform for different actors to:

  • Learn and share experience and knowledge
  • Network and build coalitions for change
  • Organise, strategize and share ideas for possible collaboration.
