Pilot project for civil society - fair taxation
As part of the EU’s agenda for fair and effective taxation, TAXUD ran a two-year pilot project to increase civil society's involvement in the campaign for fair taxation. The project was funded through a budget allocated by the European Parliament (€500 000 per year) and was carried out over a two-year period.
Between April and October 2018, fair taxation events were organised in 5 Member State capitals: Riga, Vienna, Paris, Rome and Dublin. The aim of the events was to raise awareness at national/local level of the EU agenda for fair taxation and to encourage national dialogue on this issue. The events were open to civil society organisations, policy-makers, politicians, academics, business representatives and other interested stakeholders. Registrations were taken online, on a first-come, first-served basis. In total, around 350 people attended the 5 events with a fairly even distribution of the different interest groups.
