Tax Incentives, Global Tax Fairness and the Development of Tax Law in Developed and Developing Countries: A Multi-Way Flow of Concepts

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterAcademic


This contribution seeks answers to the following three questions:
1. What does history teach us about the international governance tools regarding tax incentives and about soft or hard law used by supranational organizations in respect of tax incentives? Is there a multi-way flow of concepts, principles and categories between international organizations and supranational organizations?
2. Should there be coordination, or in the longer run harmonization? Should this coordination/harmonization be enacted on a regional basis and/or on a global basis? If so, what should be addressed?
3. Is it likely that all these governance initiatives will result in a global supranational frmaework for tax incentives in the sense that al regional organizations in the world will follow the recommendations of the international organizations and/or follow the examples of other regional organizations?
