This event, bringing together the shared expertise of Oxfam and the University of Oxford’s African Studies Centre, will discuss the notion of fair tax in the context of a growing inequality crisis. In the wake of the "Panama Papers" scandal they will also debate the problems countries have in establishing fair tax systems in the context of the labyrinthine world of tax havens.


Our keynote speaker Dr Carlos Lopez of the UN’s Economic Commission for Africa will discuss the concept of fair tax in Africa, reflecting in particular on his work to address illicit financial flows. Responses and debate will continue from our panel of eminent commentators and then the wider audience.
