I've been involved in the launch of an annual conference series on topics in taxation with relevance for developing countries.
The first conference focused on The Value Added of Value-Added Taxes. The conference was organized jointly with the Office of Tax Policy Research at the University of Michigan, Columbia University and the Norwegian University of Life Sciences and held in Washington DC on May 9-10, 2019. Here is the program.
The 2020 conference will focus on Taxing Personal Income and Wealth in Developing Countries. It will be held on May 7-8, 2020, in Washington DC. A call for papers will be circulated later in September.
