More background about TJN:
The Tax Justice Network (TJN) is an independent international network, launched in 2003. It is dedicated to high-level research, analysis and advocacy in the area of international tax and financial regulation, including the role of tax havens. TJN maps, analyses and explains the harmful impacts of tax evasion, tax avoidance and tax competition; and supports the engagement of citizens, civil society organisations and policymakers with the aim of a more just tax system. TJN pursues systemic changes that address the international inequality in the distribution of taxing rights between countries; the national inequalities – including gender inequalities – that arise from poor tax policies; and the national and international obstacles to progressive national tax policies and effective financial regulation.
Supported by a major five-year grant from the Ford Foundation, and by other funders including Norad and the Adessium Foundation, TJN is in a period of growth and transition, with a focus on institutional strengthening – building systems and capabilities to enable and support growth and impact through our ambitious five-year strategic programme. TJN is a virtual organisation, with staff working from home across multiple countries and continents, although its legal base (and that of many employees) is in the UK.
