The Australian Taxation Studies Program (Atax), University of New South Wales, has issued a Call for Papers for the first International Network for Tax Research Conference on Taxation and Development to be held at the University of Michigan on November 3-5, 2006:
The International Network for Tax Research (“INTR”) is an informal research network that was launched in July 2005 by a group of academics and research institutions with the OECD Centre for Tax Policy and Administration. The INTR aims to promote a global view of tax issues and to encourage input from developing as well as developed countries in its research projects. INTR priorities are topics that can benefit from comparative analyses and may have an impact on the formulation of public policies in OECD member countries and non OECD Economies. INTR wishes to favour a multidisciplinary approach including tax lawyers (international and domestic), economists, accountants, tax administrators and those working in related areas.
The first area of work for the INTR will be on taxation and development. This topic was identified by the group as the most suitable for a pilot project because of its multidisciplinary dimension and the wide interest it could present for OECD as well as non-OECD countries. It will be the main subject for the first INTR conference.
Papers or abstracts/outlines of papers should be submitted by May 31, 2006 to Caroline Silberztein.
