What is tax justice about in 2021?

Posted on

Tax justice has been going for eighteen years now. It has been phenomenally successful. We've won country-by-country reporting, beaten a lot of tax haven activity, increased the visibility of offshore accounts, improved corporate transparency, and more. But I am now concerned that this many years in these same issues remain the focus of too many in tax justice.

The demands tax justice should be making are big: tax justice should be seeking a fair society for all. In that case it needs to broaden its horizons. In this video, which is the first of a series, I set out what I think tax justice is about now and why it needs to re-assess what it is demanding to retain its relevance two decades after it began.
