Making science work for development

More aid. More Advisors. Better tax systems?

14 February
New York

This session at the 'First Global Conference of the Platform for Collaboration on Tax - Taxation and the Sustainable Development Goals' will take a critical look at the current set of proposals associated with this ambitious agenda. We will be asking our panellists:

  • What have we learned from past experience? And, what is different this time round?
  • What do we mean when we talk about political commitment? How can we recognise it when we see it? 
  • How can we manage the quality and coherence of technical assistance at the same time as doubling it? And will this require a paradigm shift?
