Tax Policy Conference 2018
The Centre for Tax Law at the University of Cambridge is delighted to invite proposals for papers to be presented at our third Tax Policy Conference on Friday 20 April 2018.
The topic of the conference is “Who cares about tax theory, and why?” Possible areas of interest include, but are not restricted to, the following:
· The relevance of tax theory to the policy-making process
· The relevance of tax to wider theoretical perspectives on law, politics and the economy
· The place of tax disciplines within academia
· The role of theory in navigating tax complexity and information overload
· The desirability of theoretically informed reform
The CTL is a small centre with a particular focus on legal, philosophical and historical aspects of taxation, but we welcome abstracts from any relevant academic field. As with the inaugural conference, we would be particularly glad to include papers from early career researchers and interested practitioners alongside more established academics.
Abstracts of up to 500 words should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org by 10 December 2017; up to six papers will selected by a panel shortly afterwards.
The conference will be held in Christ’s College and a small fee may be applied to cover the costs of catering. There will be limited spaces for non-speakers and an invitation will be distributed in due course.
