Fair and Sustainable Taxation in the EU

Listen to new research findings on the Common Consolidated Corporate Tax Base and other EU own resource taxes and their budgetary impact. Get to know fiscal policies that make for a fair and sustainable tax collection. Also learn about equal, socially and environmentally sustainable taxation in practice. Take part in discussions on how to create sustainable European tax systems in the future.

A seminar with European Policy makers on Fair and Sustainable Taxation in the EU will be held on 25th October in Brussels to consider alternative tax proposals to move towards a fairer tax architecture for Europe. Dr. Emer Mulligan will moderate the discussion that includes leading experts on tax and researchers from the FairTax project.

FairTax, is a crossdisciplinary four-year Horizon 2020 funded project research project, aiming to produce recommendations on how fair and sustainable taxation and social policy reforms can increase the economic stability of EU member states. How can sustainable taxation and social policy reforms promote economic equality and security, enhance coordination and harmonization of tax, enhance social inclusion, environmental sustainability, increase tax compliance, and expand the EU’s own-source revenue bases? Policy fiscal experts from eleven universities in six EU countries and three non-EU
countries contribute to FairTax research under the coordination of Umeå University (Sweden).
