On August 28-29 the School of Economics at the University of Adelaide is hosting a workshop on “Federal Relations and Tax Reform”. The workshop will focus on the operation of fiscal equalization systems and broader questions of taxation within federal systems. The intention is to address some of the policy issues facing Australia and to place these within the broader context of tax reform to meet emerging economic challenges.
The workshop is being organized with input from SA Treasury and we aim to have a diverse audience of academics, policy makers, and practitioners. The keynote speakers will be Saul Eslake (Corinna Economic Advisory, vice-Chancellor’s fellow University of Tasmania) and Jean Hindriks (Professor, Center for Operations Research and Econometrics Universite Catholique de Louvain).
Submissions are invited on topics related to fiscal relations within federal countries or on tax reform proposals designed to improve fiscal relationships. Those wishing to submit a paper should email an abstract of no more than 500 words, along with their contact details and institutional affiliation, by the end of Monday 12 June to email@example.com The programme will be announced by 19 June.
On behalf of the organizing committee:
Stuart Hocking, Gareth Myles, Jonathan Pincus, Robert Schwarz, and Duygu Yengin
