ICTD Welcomes New Research Proposals
The ICTD is now in a position to fund new research proposals on tax and development.
We welcome all proposals that are potentially policy-relevant and relate to either:
- Tax and development issues in sub-Saharan Africa, especially: property tax; informal/non-state taxation; tax compliance; the taxation of tobacco, agriculture, small (women‘s) businesses and international economic transactions; equity and taxation; strengthening accountability in and through taxation; and the links between tax revenue and public services.
- The taxation of wealthy people (High net worth individuals) in sub-Saharan Africa and South Asia.
- The implications of digitalisation for revenue raising and tax administration in sub-Saharan Africa and South Asia.
We particularly welcome proposals from African researchers that will also help build tax research capacity in Africa, especially within tax administrations and ministries of finance.
The process for developing and submitting a research proposal is outlined here.
