How can a UN Tax Convention address inequality in Europe and beyond?

This two-day conference will bring together researchers from across Europe and beyond, to address questions of inequality and the global tax architecture and question the benefits for Europe and beyond.

Societies across Europe face dramatic inequalities of income and wealth, undermining human wellbeing and hitting marginalised groups – including women and those facing overlapping inequalities – the hardest.

A major component of these uncontrolled inequalities is the failure of governments to tackle tax abuse by elites and major corporations. As a result, tax systems across the continent fail to deliver direct redistribution to damp down extreme wealth and incomes, and also fail to generate the revenues needed to tackle poverty.

Alongside new research, the conference will include high-level policy panels featuring speakers from the EU, international institutions and global civil society, addressing the future of the international tax architecture.
