IBL Roundtable on International Tax Policy with Prof. Tsilly Dagan

RSVP Online by October 1

The Dennis J. Block Center for the Study of International Business Law is pleased to invite you to a Roundtable Discussion
International Tax Policy: Between Competition and Cooperation
A Conversation with Author and Professor of Law Tsilly Dagan
Faculty of Law, Bar-Ilan University, Israel

About the Roundtable Discussion
Professor Tsilly Dagan will present her book International Tax Policy: Between Competition and Cooperation (Cambridge University Press 2017). Bringing a unique voice to international taxation, Dagan argues against the conventional support of multilateral cooperation in favor of structured competition as a way to promote both justice and efficiency in international tax policy. She analyzes international taxation as a decentralized market where governments have increasingly become strategic actors. While many of the challenges of the current international tax regime derive from this decentralized competitive structure, Dagan maintains that curtailing competition through centralization is not necessarily the answer. Conversely, competition—if properly calibrated and notwithstanding its dubious reputation—is conducive rather than detrimental to both efficiency and global justice. She opens the book with a discussion of the basic normative goals of income taxation, explaining how competition transforms them and analyzing the strategic games states play on the bilateral and multilateral level. Dagan then considers the costs and benefits of co-operation and competition in terms of efficiency and justice.
