During this webinar Martin Hearson (Research Fellow at Institute of Development Studies - International Tax Programme Lead for the ICTD) will explain the problem of high-income countries imposing tax standards on low-income countries, which are addressed in his book Imposing Standards.
|Date||17 November 2021|
Through this critically acclaimed publication, Hearson shows that capacity constraints and imperfect negotiation strategies in developing countries were exploited by capital-exporting states, shielding multinationals from taxation and depriving nations in the Global South of revenue they both need and deserve.
