The Faculty of Law at McGill University invites you a Symposium on tax justice and human rights, that will bring together students, academic researchers, and tax justice advocates and activists to collaborate on the topic of tax justice: what is it, how is tax connected to human rights or how could it be, and what research needs to be done to further this emerging field?
We are currently doing a call for paper proposals (300-500 words along with a short résumé). See our Call for papers for complete details. Deadline: April 30, 2014.
REGISTRATION (for members outside McGill): https://www.taxfairness.ca/civicrm/event/register?reset=1&id=5&cid=0
A request for Continuing Legal Education accreditation has been made to the Barreau du Québec.
The conference will start with an “emerging scholars” researchers symposium, in which a number of graduate level students will present works in progress on topics of tax justice and receive feedback from academic researchers interested in these topics, with the goal of building capacity in tax justice and human rights research.
The second and third days will feature academic researchers who will present their own works in progress on the topic, and engage with other academics as well as members of the local, national, and international NGO and tax activist community. It will also feature presentations by tax justice advocates and activists from around the world who are engaged on various issues of tax justice and are looking to the academic community for input and collaboration.
The program will be posted once we have completed the call for paper proposals.
