Tax policy in contradiction to development policy?
Panel discussion (in English and partly in German language)
The event is organised by Global Responsibility, the Austrian Platform for development and humanitarian aid, and the Vienna Institute for International Dialogue and Cooperation (VIDC).
Based on the presentation of the paper “Tax policy in contradiction to development policy? Tax justice and the role of global corporations” and its recommendations to the Austrian government the panelists will discuss along the following questions:
Does the Austrian tax policy support or hinder the realisation of development objectives like the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)?
How could the Austrian tax policy be shaped and how can policies be coordinated so that development objectives can be realised?
