The Centre for Tax Governance at the University of Birmingham will have its second annual conference entitled Taxation as a Social and Political Institution  to be held on the 10th of March 2016.  The programme will consist of an excellent line up of speakers including the key note addresses by Professor Anthony Infanti (Pittsburgh, US), Dr Lisa Marriott (Victoria Wellington, New Zealand), Professor Mick Moore (IDS, Sussex) and Professor Rebecca Boden (Roehampton).

Anthony Infanti is Senior Associate Dean for Administration and Special Projects and a Professor of Law at the University of Pittsburgh School of Law, teaching courses in the tax area. Professor Infanti’s scholarly work has focused on two ostensibly quite different, but, in reality, quite related areas: (i) the intersection of tax and comparative legal theory and (ii) critical tax theory (i.e., the impact of the tax system on traditionally subordinated groups). Professor Infanti has authored articles relating to international taxation and the application of comparative legal theory to taxation that have appeared in publications such as the Utah Law Review, the Florida Tax Review, and the Vanderbilt Journal of Transnational Law.

Lisa Marriott is Associate Professor at the Victoria University of Wellington. Her current research interests include taxation, comparative international accounting, and experimental approaches to taxation research.  Her work has been published in academic outlets such as the British Tax Review, Critical Perspectives on Accounting and the New Zealand Journal of Taxation Law and Policy.

Mick Moore is a political economist and Professor at the University of Sussex. He has conducted extensive field research in Asia and Africa, especially Sri Lanka, Taiwan and India. His broad research interests are in the domestic and international dimensions of good and bad governance in poor countries. He focuses specifically on taxation and governance, and is the founding Chief Executive Officer of the International Centre for Tax and Development.

Rebecca Boden is Professor of Critical Management at Roehampton University and a founder member of the Tax Research Network. Working within the critical tradition, her current research focuses primarily on three areas: the effects of regimes of accounting and management on sites of knowledge creation – especially higher education and scientific research organisations; accounting, individuals and the state. This work looks at tax, welfare benefits and the imbrication of accounting in matters of political economy; and, trade credit. She has published in journals such as Accounting, Organizations and Society, Critical Perspectives on Accounting, Higher Education Policy and the British Accounting Review.

We anticipate a vibrant and intellectually stimulating event. We have a limited number of spaces available. If you would like to attend, contact Professor Penelope Tuck, Director of the Centre for Tax Governance at P.A.L.Tuck@bham.ac.uk or, Dr Rodrigo Ormeño- Perez at R.Ormeno@bham.ac.uk .
