Taxing Africa book launch and discussion in Pretoria

About the event

The newly published book, Taxing Africa, offers a comprehensive and accessible introduction to the crucial debates around taxation and development in Africa. Written by leading international experts, it examines issues from tax evasion by multinational corporations and African elites to how ordinary people navigate complex webs of ‘informal’ local taxation, examining the challenges and the potential for reform.

On 1 February, the African Tax Institute at the University of Pretoria will host a launch of the book. Authors Mick Moore and Odd-Helge Fjeldstad will provide an introduction to the book, to be followed by a panel and an open discussion. All are welcome to attend.

If you’d like to attend, please RSVP to by Monday, 28 January 2019.
