Tax Abuses, Poverty and Human Rights

Tax Abuses, Poverty and Human Rights

The European launch of the International Bar Association's Human Rights Institute (IBAHRI) Task Force Report.

The Hague Institute for Global Justice, November 2013

 The Hague Institute for Global justice will organise the launch in close collaboration with the Task Force's chair Thomas Pogge (Chair of CROP and Leitner Professor of Philosophy and International Affairs, Yale University).

The report addresses tax abuses from the novel perspective of human rights law and policy. Based on extensive consultation from diverse perspectives, the expert Task Force offers insight into the links between tax abuses, poverty and human rights. The report analyses the responsibilities and remedies to counter tax abuse and delivers recommendations for states, businesses and the legal profession.

The launch will be preceded by a roundtable on the theme: “Illicit Financial Flows and the Widening Poverty Gap", which aims at translating research on illicit financial flows into evidence-based policy with relevance for the private sector. It will focus on cross-border movement of money that is illegally earned, transferred or utilized, a trend which often has negative consequences for development.

The IBAHRI report is available from the IBAHRI website
