We study how economic policy, in particular taxation and international agreements, affects the economic incentives of firms and individuals. Understanding how financial, investment and location decisions are shaped by countries' unilateral or coordinated policy measures is essential to assess the effect of those policies on the global allocation of different dimensions of economic activity.
We are part of the RSIT, an interdisciplinary group of researchers from the School of Business and Economics and the Faculty of Law analyzing current issues in international taxation.
