In order to secure the social foundation for people today and in the future, radical changes both to business behavior and to the global distributional landscape are required. Tax systems are a recognized force for both behavioral change and redistribution. Are tax systems responding, however, to these needs?
“Green tax” regimes exist, of course, but do they work and are they enough? What are their impacts along global value chains? What barriers to sustainable business exist in the way market actors are taxed outside such regimes, and in the way market actors respond to tax systems generally? Are the outcomes of the OECD’s “Base Erosion and Profit Shifting” project, and instruments such as the EU’s Anti-Tax Avoidance Directive, enough to stall the flow of untaxed corporate profits from developing countries? More generally, how can tax policy become a positive driver for sustainable development? How can sustainable development imperatives be integrated in tax policy-making on the level of individual states, at EU-level, and globally? These are some of the questions the Taxation and Sustainable Development Conference aims to address when convening an international and interdisciplinary group of scholars to Oslo University Faculty of Law on 25 April 2017.
