European tax integration: law, policy and politics - GREIT 11th Annual Conference - 8-10 September 2016, Isle of Ischia, Italy
The Group for Research on European and International Taxation (GREIT) hosts annual events in the form of conferences and summer schools .
The GREIT 11th is the latest annual Conference of this unique think-tank, which has distinguished itself during the past 10 years for anticipating the trends of European international tax law.
This year the focus is on European tax integration: law, policy and politics. We intend to explore the potential dynamics of integration in connection with the new context of global tax coordination. A nice combination of theory and practice with top academics, officials and practitioners will allow participants to have a deeper insight on how European international tax law may develop in the next few years.
Day one focuses on trends and facts on European integration, role of expert groups, enhancing the legitimacy and filling the democratic gap and tax between law and policy in the EU and in relations with third countries.
Day two looks at frictions between the effective primacy of supranational law and national tax sovereignty, EU Anti-BEPS package and its implications and a possible roadmap for European tax integration in the era of global supranational tax law.
For programme- and practical information, please find attached the brochure.
The registration fee is EUR 500 (incl. lunch). Free registration for full-time academics and doctoral students, upon request. Limited seats available. Registration on the spot not available. Early registration recommended.

10th GREIT Annual Conference 17 and 18 September 2015, Amsterdam.
The Group for Research on European and International Taxation (GREIT) is happy to announce the 10th GREIT Annual Conference to be held in Amsterdam on 17 and 18 September 2015.
"EU BEPS; Fiscal transparency, Protection of Taxpayer Rights and State Aid.
European Union law and the building of global supranational tax law: a two way flow of concepts and categories"
How does European international tax law face the challenges of the establishment of global supranational tax law? With the publication of the EU Action Plan ‘’Fair and Efficient Corporate Tax System in the European Union: 5 Key Areas for Action’ it is clear that European Law will influence International tax law and the BEPS discussion (also called the establishment of ‘global supranational tax law’). On the other hand will the BEPS discussion influence the way European Tax Law will be interpreted and established.
The two ways International tax law and European Law influences each other and will or will not bring forward a global supranational tax law will be discussed during this seminar.
Day one focuses on the framework of multilateralism within which global supranational tax law is blossoming, addressing not only how this impacts tax sovereignty and the sources of law, but also two topical sessions on BEPS and fiscal transparency.
Day two looks at the flow from European Union law towards global supranational tax law, taking into account the protection of rights, free competition and the rationale of State aids, also with an emphasis on a new framework for tax incentives (which looks at tax reductions in line with
a corresponding impact on the expenditure side) on a global basis.
