Tax Justice and Fight against Poverty

Discussion workshop
Aug 10 2016  13:00 - 15:30

The irresponsibility of speculators in a deregulated world, as well as the unlimited ambition and the lack of scruples and solidarity have triggered a world crisis that has resulted in poverty, rising inequalities and a huge debt crises, in developed as well as developing countries. In these hard times, where internationality could play the role of a global economic stabilizer, solidarity and social justice have become one of the greatest challenges of our times – and tax justice is at the heart of the debate. We need to find new sources of revenue, either by tackling tax evasion and avoidance or by enhancing new instruments to finance development.

Format:

This workshop aims at maximising the debate between the speakers and the participants at the conference, thanks to active moderation. With this purpose in mind, we have decided to adopt a format of discussions that will privilege interaction. The moderator will have the task to lead a lively discussion, with a flexible management of speakers and audience, using this focused briefing with a set of potential questions. We kindly ask speakers not to prepare ready-to-read speeches but short introductions of 5 minutes maximum. As there are 180 minutes available for each workshop (TBC), the speakers and the participants should not have lengthy contributions.
