Taxing multinationals in a globalized world
First year of CORPTAX

First year of CORPTAX

As 2021 comes to an end, we look back at the fruitful first year of the CORPTAX project and summarize the main successes of CORPTAX researchers.

  1. Evgeniya Dubinina had her paper on fiscal consequences of corporate tax avoidance selected by UNU-WIDER through the request for research proposals on Data for tax revenue mobilization. She also presented her excess profits tax paper at the Public Economics Seminar at Charles University and the preliminary results were cited by Der Spiegel
  2. Valeria Sechini had her research idea on tax havens and link prediction on the ownership network accepted to the Winter Workshop on Complex Systems held in France in late January 2022. Also, she presented another research paper on how corporate tax avoidance exacerbates inequality between countries at the Public Economics Seminar at Charles University on 24 November 2021. 
  3. Javier Garcia-Bernardo published a proposal to end corporate tax abuse in Global Policy. After he joined Utrecht University in late 2021 as an assistant professor, he continues collaborating on CORPTAX research but no longer as a postdoctoral researcher.
  4. Miroslav Palanský has published a paper on secrecy jurisdictions in Regulation and Governance and another paper on tax treaties in Review of International Economics.
  5. Petr Janský has presented a working paper on profit shifting worldwide at a conference organised by the EU Tax Observatory and the European Commission. He also circulated a preliminary draft of a paper on profit shifting by US multinational companies.
