Joint Executive Training Seminar between the Academy of Global Governance and the WU Global Tax Policy Center at the Institute for Austrian and International Tax Law, WU.
This Executive-Training Seminar followed the successful 2011 and 2012 editions. The Academy of Global Governance and the WU Vienna University of Economics and Business have created an on-going programme on global tax governance and fiscal transparency, and this year’s executive-training seminar brought together top speakers from academia, international institutions, business, and civil society to discuss the changing role of multi-lateral and regional organisations; the changing role of business and civil society; the recent EU proposals on tax and governance; improving international co-operation to counter offshore non-compliance; the protection of the taxpayer in a more transparent environment.
