Alex Cobham ■ COFFERS tax course: Register now


We’re delighted to announce that registration is now open for a short course in tax at the Copenhagen Business School, being run as part of the COFFERS project (Combating Financial Fraud and Empowering Regulators).

The programme runs from 12-14 September 2018. It features many of the leading international tax researchers who participate in COFFERS, and is designed to provide a practical overview of a wide range of international tax questions. In addition to the sessions outlined below, there will be a number of additional keynote speakers.

The course will be of interest to post-graduate students, private sector professionals, policymakers, regulators and activists. It is offered free, thanks to European Commission funding, except for a charge for meals and refreshments. Participants are expected to cover any travel and accommodation.
