Sponsored by the Robert D. Burch Center for Tax Policy and Public Finance and the Oxford University Centre for Business Taxation; the Workshop on International Taxation is a five-day conference intended to promote the integration of the relevant tools of economic analysis, and the results from the economics literature,into tax law research and instruction in the area of international taxation. During the week of June 22- June 26th, a group of leading tax law professors who have worked in the area of international taxation will meet together in daily seminars aimed at providing a comprehensive review of the state of thinking on this very complex topic. Some of the issues addressed at the conference will be the effects of tax regimes on international investment, location,and financing patterns; international tax avoidance and efforts to prevent it; the meaning and usefulness of different norms typically used to evaluate international tax systems; the impact of tax havens and other low-tax jurisdictions; the theory and evidence on international tax competition; the problems involved in integrating domestic tax reforms with existing international tax treaties and arrangements; the possible uses of apportionment rules for allocating income and deductions among jurisdictions; and the relationship between tax and trade polices.
