Fireside Chats (FSC)
In these events, Prof. Jeffrey Owens and leading players in the field of tax policy discuss issues which are currently preoccupying governments, business and civil society.
These Fireside Chats enable a wide range of people to participate in policy debates providing input from their various fields of interest. The “chats” have a live studio audience and are also broadcasted online. The one and half hour informal discussions focus on topics which are not too technical but which are controversial!
The audience is encouraged to put questions to the speakers during each round and our virtual audience post questions via the internet as well.
The outcomes of the Fireside Chat are published by Tax Notes International.
