Research on taxation in Africa is proliferating and, along with it, (potential) intersections of research across literatures and disciplines have multiplied. The panel(s) welcome(s) research on all tax-related topics from across disciplines, time periods and sub-regions including both empirical, theoretical and conceptual papers. We want to explore the dynamics and politics of historical and contemporary taxation locally, nationally and internationally, and to critically engage with commonly held ideas about formal and informal taxation, tax administration, tax reforms and the role of taxation in governance and state-society relations. The panel(s) will prioritise engagement across disciplines to explore intersections in the literatures on taxation in Africa, emphasizing common denominators and bridging what often become disciplinary silos.

Please share your abstract with me: [email protected] by Sunday, 6 March.

Please let me know if you would be ready to chair a panel and/or discuss papers.
