Abstract:

ICTD Research In Brief 6

We are pleased to present the sixth in our publication series, ICTD Research in Brief – two-pagesummaries of our working papers edited to capture the main policy messages and aimed at policy makers, tax administrators, fellow researchers and anyone else who is big on interest and short on time. We hope you enjoy it.

This issue investigates the neglected topic of the impact of taxation on people’s livelihoods, especially in places affected by war and violent conflict.
