02 April 2021

The new open access book, Taxation, International Cooperation and the Sustainable Development Agenda was launched on April 1, 2021. A part of the United Nations University Series on Regionalism, the book has been published by the Springer Nature Group. The volume addresses the connections between international taxation, the 2030 Sustainable Development Agenda and the medium-term revenue strategy concept. In addition, it assesses how nations and governments can strengthen these links for future initiatives in international taxation and sustainable development.  

The book has been co-edited by:

  • Irma Johanna Mosquera Valderrama, (PhD, University of  Groningen), Associate Professor at  the  Faculty  of  Law  of  the  University  of  Leiden,  the  Netherlands.  She is the principal investigator of the ERC Funded Project GLOBTAXGOV.
  • Dries Lesage, UNU-CRIS Professorial Fellow, Associate Professor at Ghent University, Belgium and Director of the Ghent Institute of International Studies.  
  • Dr. Wouter Lips, Post-Doctoral Assistant at Ghent University focusing on the international political economy of taxation and global tax governance.

The insights within this volume present an interdisciplinary combination of expertise in tax law, international political economy, global governance and international relations. Through these different perspectives, the book provides an elaborate reference and evaluation framework for multilateral cooperation on tax and development to strengthen the revenue system of developed and developing countries. This topical volume is of interest to students and researchers of the social sciences, law and economics, as well as policy makers working on taxation.    

Funded by the European Research Council, the GLOBATAXGOV project examines tax law making and is undertaken at Leiden Law School.
