TJN’s efforts to promote international cooperation on the part of governments and enforce responsibility on the part of multinationals safeguard the resources developing countries need for their development.
Manuel (Butch) Montes, The South Centre
TJN was instrumental not only in promoting policy issues pertaining to global tax dodging and exposing its impact on government revenue and public service provision worldwide and development finance in developing countries. It was also equally instrumental in encouraging, and giving policy and institutional support to civil society organisations in the South to engage with the issues and join the tax justice movement to raise their voice and get involved in the struggle against tax dodging and illicit financial flows. Tax Justice Network ? Africa and other tax justice networks in the South owe a lot to this initial support.
Dereje Alemayehu, Global Alliance for Tax Justice
The expression ‘tax justice’ has entered vocabulary, thanks to the efforts of the Tax Justice Network. Its calls for automatic exchange of information, transparency of company ownership, country-by-country reporting and unitary taxation have redefined the field of taxation, corporate governance and international relations to empower people and call giant corporations to account.
We are an independent international network launched in 2003. We conduct high-level research, analysis and advocacy on international tax; on the international aspects of financial regulation; on the role of tax in society; and on the impacts of tax evasion, tax avoidance, tax 'competition' and tax havens. We seek to create understanding and debate, and to promote reform, especially in poorer countries. We are not aligned to any political party.
