Moderated by Ann Mumford, King’s College London
This is an important moment in global tax scholarship and activism. The diversity of scholars and activists working within taxation is exceeded only by
the level of public interest in the apparent disconnect between democratic politics, transnational legal structures, and taxation. The potential of
forging connections between the development of a truly sustainable future and both supra-governmental, and domestic, tax choices appears closer than
ever, even as concern over existing legal frameworks intensifies.
Inspired by the theme of this Summit, this panel will consider specifically the potential for human development through Labour, Work and Action; and, frankly
pragmatic choices within the tax global legal order that might redress apparently intransigent inequalities.
