African Tax Research Network launches first event


A new African conference hopes to bring together tax scholars to discuss important research-based issues for the continent's tax administrators and policy makers.

The newly-established African Tax Research Network (ATRN) will hold its first annual congress under the title, Contemporary Tax Challenges for African Countries, in Zimbabwe from September 2 to 4. It wants to hear from academics and scholars who would like to present their research at the conference. 

The ATRN, which is part of the African Tax Administration Forum's secretariat, "aims to be the platform of choice for African tax research and to facilitate African capacity for credible research in tax policy, administration, law and leadership".   

Anyone interested in the conference should contact the organiser, Esther Roman, at
