2021 IEB SUMMER WORKSHOPS: Workshop on Economics of Taxation (Virtual workshop)

Inici: juny 02, 2021 Fi: juny 03, 2021

Virtual workshop


This year’s Workshop on The Economics of Taxation will take place in Barcelona on June 2-3, 2021. We welcome submissions of any topic in the field of taxation, we especially invite contributions dealing with taxation in developing countries, tax evasion, inequality, and tax enforcement; and paper dealing with the challenges for tax systems created by the pandemic.


We invite researchers working on these or on closely related topics to submit their manuscripts. We welcome the submission of theoretical and empirical papers. Two invited plenary sessions will complement the contributed sessions.


The workshop will be online. If the situation with the Covid-19 allows it, we will switch to a mixed in-person/online workshop. We will inform the accepted authors about the final format to give enough time to plan the trip to Barcelona for those interested in attending in person. All those not willing to attend in person will present online.
