    Course Description

    There are two primary sources of fundamental and increasing pressure for reforming the taxation of multinational enterprises (MNEs):

    i) tax avoidance and planning by MNEs (“profit shifting”) using a variety of strategies; and

    ii) international tax competition. Within that context, this course explains the scale and scope of international tax pressures and discusses reform options and their economic implications. Moreover, the course covers particular areas of relevance for countries in the region including tax treaty policy, design of anti-tax avoidance measures, and international tax aspects of the extractive industries in resource-rich countries. Modality of the course: Two presentations a day (each 45 minutes followed by Q&As for about 15 minutes).
