Tax Justice Together
About the project
At the centre of the Tax Justice Together project is the problem of tax dodging that costs developing countries $160bn a year. We need changes at a national, regional and international level to eliminate the structural causes of global poverty, inequality and unequal development.

Overall objective of the project is to promote fair and equitable tax reform as a driver for inclusive and sustainable growth, to reduce poverty and inequality, and to promote fairer relations between developed and developing countries, in the context of the post-MDG consensus.
Specific objective of the project is to increase EU citizens’ critical understanding and active engagement, alongside campaigners in the global South, in pan-European efforts towards progressive and equitable reform of global tax policies, particularly during EYD2015.
Action is designed in 4 results:
- Result 1: European citizens (especially aged 21-30) have improved awareness of and demonstrate support for fair and equitable tax systems.
- Result 2: Students, CSOs and their supporters have increased critical understanding of global tax policies, how to engage in the debate about tax policy reform and campaign skills.
- Result 3: Students, CSOs and their supporters actively engage with efforts to develop progressive pan-European positions on global tax policy reform, in collaboration with activists in the global South.
- Result 4: Policy makers in European Parliament and MS make commitments to progressive tax policies that benefit European citizens as well as citizens in developing countries.
