Economics serving society

The EU Tax Observatory are recruiting an Event Officer

The EU Tax Observatory is a new organization dedicated to conducting, promoting, and disseminating innovative, high-quality, and impactful research on EU taxation. It is directed by Prof. Gabriel ZUCMAN and is hosted at the Paris School of Economics. In 18 months, we expect to establish the Observatory as the leading reference for the study of taxation in the European Union (with a focus on corporate tax avoidance and tax evasion); a platform for civil society engagement with strong name recognition across the European Union; a source of new ideas for combating tax avoidance and evasion; and an international reference for the study of taxation in a globalized word. The EU Tax Observatory brings together Paris School of Economics with the University of Copenhagen and DIW Berlin. It is co-financed by the European Commission.

Paris School of Economics is a private non-profit research foundation. PSE develops economic research of the highest international standard. It brings together a community of 140 researchers and around 200 graduate students. Now firmly established as a leading global research institution, PSE delivers its scholarship to a broad public and supports the work of its teams in multiple partnerships with public institutions and private organisations.
