Conference webpage: https://www.taxjustice.net/tjn19/

The 2019 conference is co-organised by the Association for Accountancy & Business Affairs, City, University of London (CityPERC) and the Tax Justice Network.

The challenges of tax justice do not exist in a vacuum. It is not an accident that billions of dollars are lost worldwide to tax avoidance and tax evasion each year. Nor is there anything random about the failure to tackle loopholes, or to move forward proven measures to improve transparency and accountability of the actors, or simply to maintain progressive taxation.

The professional enablers – including banks, law firms and the major audit and accounting firms, along with real estate agents, trust companies and others, and myriad lobbying groups– are key players in both the design of schemes for tax abuse and the prejudicial political influence that undermines tax justice, and in some cases in facilitating criminal activities. The resulting impacts on human rights, including women’s rights, are dramatic.

This year, our conference will focus on qualitative and quantitative research that explores the role and the influence of the enablers, and innovative proposals for their better regulation. Additional topics include tax competition and the race to the bottom, tax justice and human rights, financial secrecy, scale of revenue losses, and whistleblowers.

There will be an inaugural TJN lecture and prize, which will be separately ticketed and in a nearby venue, from 6pm to 9pm on the evening of the first day (Tuesday 2 July). You can save £5 on admission to this event by buying your ticket at the same time as your main conference ticket. The lecture, by Professor Sol Picciotto of Lancaster University, will be on the past, present and future of international tax rules, and will be followed by the awarding of the inaugural Anderson-Lucas-Norman award for tax justice heroism. Drinks and light refreshments will be served.
