Academic Seminar "The Role and Design of Tax Treaties in a Global Integrated Economy", 6. February 2018
The Institute for Austrian and International Tax Law Vienna in cooperation with the WU Global Tax Policy Center are organizing an academic seminar on the Role and Design of Tax Treaties in a Global Integrated Economy.
This one-day seminar on "The role and design of tax treaties in a global integrated economy" will take place on 6 February 2018 in LC.0.200 on WU Campus, Vienna, Austria. We aim to construct it as a way to provide an opportunity for inter-disciplinary discussions on the current research for tax treaties. The event will bring together leading tax experts representing academia, public institutions, and practitioners from around the globe.
The latest developments on the international agenda have profound implications on the shape of the tax treaty network across the board. On the one hand, many countries have already committed to amend their tax treaties by signing the Multilateral Instrument and on the other, some countries are becoming more and more skeptical about entering into tax treaties. The time is ripe to take stock of the tax treaty network, both from a legal and an economic perspective, to assess what the future for tax treaties may be.
Experts and/or researchers in law and/or economics are invited to submit their paper proposals on one of three topics:
Modern Legal Perspectives on Tax Treaties.
Modern Economic Perspectives on Tax Treaties.
Looking Forward – the Future of Tax Treaties.
(See the draft agenda for a short description of each topic.)
Your paper proposal should include the following details:
Title of the paper;
Authors(s) brief professional bio and contact details;
An abstract of between 200-500 words of the contents of the proposed paper including its findings; and
Status of the paper (for example, whether it is part of ongoing research or whether it has been previously published, etc.)
Proposals should be submitted online or sent to project coordinator, Melody Ishin Hsiao firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject ‘The Role and Design of Tax Treaties in a Global Integrated Economy- Call for Papers 2018’ by end of the day on Friday, 17 November 2017 (Central European Time).
Selection of Papers
Following a double blind peer review of submissions, the organizing committee will advise you of its decision by 18 December 2017. Full papers should then be submitted by 31 January 2018. Participants selected to present papers will be expected to cover their own costs. All selected papers will be shared before the meeting (as confidential drafts) so that all participants can contribute and provide valuable feedback.
