- Research Workshop "Measurement in Customs and Tax Administrations in Emerging and Developing Countries"
- Algiers, Algeria
- The objective of this workshop is twofold.On the one hand, the aim is to promote applied research on existing measurement tools and/or experiments conducted by customs and tax administrations, international organizations and donors. As such, the contributions of practitioners are encouraged, especially in a narrative style to report on the implementation of practices of quantification, its difficulties and the changes in the relations between officials and users, government, donors and between officials themselves.Besides implementation, a second key issue is how to evaluate the effect of a measurement technique. Are quantitative approaches sufficient to measure the impact of a measurement technique? Are randomized controlled trials (RCT) feasible in customs and tax administrations?Can RCT itself be used as a measurement technique for evaluating the administrative action?On the other hand, the aim of the workshop is to deepen the analysis of measurement as a technique of government as it applies to tax, with the help of several disciplines (anthropology, law, economics, history, political science and sociology).[gem?_?? den Informationen des Anbieters - according to site editor's information]
