Sharing the Wealth: Tax Justice in the Slow Growth Era

Organiser: The Tax Group, Melbourne Law School

Date & Time: Friday 20 May 2022, 8.30am to 5pm (AEST)

Location: Melbourne Law School

Sharing the Wealth: Tax and Justice in The Slow Growth Era project, aims to address fundamental problems of injustice in taxation emerging in the transition to a slow growth economy in Australia and globally. The project applies interdisciplinary approaches to generate new knowledge that aims to update frameworks for justice in taxation, refreshing out-dated 20th century ethical and legal approaches. Collaborative legal and philosophy analysis by leading scholars in Australia and the United States will respond to contemporary conditions of slow growth, wage stagnation, wealth inequality, population aging and longevity. Project outcomes will include tax reform proposals to benefit policy makers and enrich public debate on tax justice for 21st century economic and fiscal conditions.

This introductory research workshop is a forum to share and discuss about the project themes and goals, data, law and policy approaches – from tax law and legal philosophy academics, philosophers, economists, historians and public policy experts.
