- UCSIA workshop ??Taxation and Trust: Legitimizing Redistributive Tax Policies?? - University Centre Saint-Ignatius Antwerp
- Antwerp, University of Antwerp, Campus Hof van Liere, Belgium
- This academic workshop wants to investigate the crisis of legitimacy of tax systems in Western democracies. Citizens and corporations appear less willing than ever to pay taxes, a high-tech industry has been created to aid in the circumvention of taxes, and even the tax collector sometimes seems uncertain as to the proper end and means of taxation. Are collective institutions still able to generate a sufficient level of trust to keep this mechanism going? And if not, what are the key factors that contribute to this decline in trust?Topics: - Taxation and inequality between citizens - Taxation, societal culture and civic solidarity - Taxation, political parties and ideologies - Taxation and the institutional environment at the national and international level - Taxation and corporations[gem?_?? den Informationen des Anbieters - according to site editor's information]
