Clustering with other EU projects to combat tax evasion – COFFERS & PROTAX

PROTAX consortium is delighted to participate in the ‘Combatting Fiscal Fraud and Empowering Regulators’ (COFFERS) project General Assembly on 17th and 18th of September 2018 in London.

Both consortiums support the European Union to confront expanded inequalities across a range of areas – from gender to generational, wealth, mobility and opportunity – engendered by deficiencies in fiscal systems as one of the underlying common factors.

Among other key areas of inquiry, the 2-day COFFERS Assembly will be an opportunity to discuss:

  • An assessment of the Evolving European Fiscal Regime
  • The Effect of International Transparency on Domestic Tax Policy
  • Influences on Tax Experts as Mediators of Practice

PROTAX coordinator, Prof. Dr. Umut Turksen, has recently joined the COFFERS project advisory board. Regarding his participation to the general assembly he commented:

It is a pleasure to participate in the COFFERS General Assembly; both projects ultimately aim to harmonise the treatment of tax crime and enhance information sharing across different European jurisdictions. While PROTAX research has a strong empirical focus on the characterisation of the human factors – in terms of victims, enablers and perpetrators of tax crimes – COFFERS, in its first two years, has already developed a thorough policy assessment of methodologies to combat tax crime adopted by Member States’ jurisdictions. Working together is a great opportunity to complement our research as well as to enhance the reach and significance of the impact of our respective projects “.
