New Animated Movie on Mapping Multinational Tax Avoidance
Associate Professor Duncan Wigan, Professor Leonard Seabrooke, Assistant Professor Oddný Helgadóttir, PhD fellow Rasmus Corlin Christensen, PhD fellow Saila Naomi Stausholm constitute a partnership in the European Union’s Horizon 2020 project, COFFERS, which is about combating fiscal fraud and empowering regulators. One of the impact strategies of this partnership is to produce a series of animated short films with the aim of presenting their complex research field to the citizens of Europe. The fourth animated movie – Mapping Multinational Tax Avoidance – is starring PhD fellow Saila Stausholm, who offers a closer look on the hands that make the money disappear in front of our eyes. It is time to regulate the business of tax services – they might be closer to us than we think!
|EU Horizon 2020 Project: Coffers (Combating Fiscal Fraud and Empowering Regulators)
|The European Union confronts expanded inequalities across a range of areas from gender, to generational, wealth, mobility and opportunity. One underlying factor common to these expanded inequalities is deficiencies in fiscal systems. The ‘Combatting Fiscal Fraud and Empowering Regulators’ (COFFERS) project seeks to redress these deficiencies as policy innovation at national, regional and international levels undergoes a period of accelerated development. The consortium identifies deficiencies and opportunities for upgrading in tax law, tax policy development, tax administration and enforcement at the EU level and across Member States.
