The Tax and Development workshop will bring together researchers, tax experts and practitioners to exchange experiences on using administrative tax data in their respective countries for research purposes. The event will be attended by 40 experts from different countries and institutions. The event will be organized virtually.
Besides highlighting research findings from South Africa and Uganda in the scope of UNU-WIDER’s research project Building up efficient and fair tax systems – lessons based on administrative tax data, the workshop will include presentations that build on the practical experience in different countries. The possibilities for expanding similar research activities to other African countries will also be discussed. The workshop also aims to enhance the South-South collaboration on the use of tax administrative data for research purposes.
