Architects of a Better World: Addressing Tax and Poverty



Architects of a Better World: Addressing Tax and Poverty




This is the 3rd seminar in an ESRC funded seminar series Architects of a Better World: Building the Post 2015 Business Engagement Architecture, a direct response to the United Nations Global Compact’s call for businesses and business schools to support sustainable development.

The seminar is of interest to those operating in the fields of taxation and of international development, or who are interested in their impact. In particular, this event should be relevant to:


  • Policy-makers in those fields;
  • Tax and/or development practitioners;
  • Academics and students;
  • People interested in the impact of fiscal policy on society
This day’s events are set in the context of the newly-launched UN Sustainable Development Goals, with a particular focus on Goal One: No Poverty. The morning session will present early-stage research addressing a range of tax policy issues, with short presentations designed to give an overview of forthcoming work in this field. A panel of leaders from the United Nations, OECD, Christian Aid and academic research with an open Q&A session will run in the afternoon.

The event will be held in the Kemmy Business School at University of Limerick, from 10am to 4.30pm on March 22nd. Please register using this eventbrite page or email sheila.killian@ul.ie for an invitation
