Peru: Tax Justice and Women's Rights




Global Alliance for Tax Justice's committed partner Public Services International
(PSI) carried out a pilot study on Taxation and Gender in Peru in 2017. The
objective of the study was to observe the behavior of tax evasion / avoidance
and the investment capacity of the State in key public services for the exercise
of women's rights.

"The study is an important sample that transcends the specific data of the
country. It rather allows us to look more broadly at the relationship between
taxation, public investment and elimination of gender gaps in the world," says
Verónica Montúfar of ISP.

Therefore,  PSI and its National Women's Committee in Peru, together with
ACTRAV-Lima Regional Office and Friedrich Ebert Stiftung (FES), will hold a
Forum to present the study, on the occasion of the International Day of Public
Services in 2018, Friday 22 June, at the ILO Regional Office in Lima.

For more information, you can contact Verónica Montúfar, Global Head of
Gender Equality of the ISP.
