In this research project a number of smaller research projects are included. One project, in collaboration with UNU-WIDER, is focusing on tax policy in developing countries. The project review experiences and challenges of tax policy changes across developing countries in order to mobilize domestic resources and reduce aid-dependency. In another project we study tax evasion in Kenya and Tanzania. A third project is studying the distributional effects of broadening Value Added Tax (VAT) in Bangladesh.
