Tax Havens. Selected Theoretical and Practical Key Issues: A Legal and Economic Perspective – 8-10 June 2011

Academy of Global Governance

Tax Havens

What Participants Say….

“Excellent interactive seminar providing a wealth of information and food for thought.”

Doris Kolassa (European Parliament)

“The seminar has successfully put together experts from academia and governamental institutions and has provided for a very stimulating forum of discussion on one of the currently hottest topics of international taxation.”

Sebastiano Garufi (Bocconi University)

The Executive Training Seminar analyzed the key legal, policy and economic issues of the transition from tax havens to global fiscal transparency. Top speakers applied a theoretical and practical methodology to draw a borderline between the co-operative and non co-operative jurisdictions, shed light on the role of the OECD and the EU; analysed the common ground between their initiatives and the future perspectives of co-operation, discussed the novelties of the brand new EU Directive on mutual assistance, and anticipated the expected international tax developments.




Following the Key experts met for a closing conference on Saturday 11 June 2011.
