The Centre for Tax Law at the University of Cambridge is delighted to invite proposals for papers to be presented at our fifth Tax Policy Conference on Monday 3 and Tuesday 4 July 2023.

The topic of the conference is ‘Tax, public finance and the rule of law’. We have prepared a brief paper explaining this theme and setting out possible areas in which proposals could be made.

The CTL is a small centre with a particular focus on legal, philosophical and historical aspects of taxation. We welcome abstracts from all relevant academic fields but have a particular preference for papers from early career researchers, interested practitioners, legal scholars and researchers in other fields who are willing to comment on law from their own perspective.

The conference will be held in the Faculty of Law in Cambridge, but we are alert to the continuing constraints on academic funding for travel. We would therefore encourage you to apply even if you believe that you are unlikely to be able to travel to Cambridge, and we will tailor our plans for the conference depending on whether the accepted abstracts demonstrate a need for hybrid facilities.

As with the previous conferences as well as the CTL’s biennial tax history conference (see Tax Justice and Tax Law: Understanding Unfairness in Tax Systems and Tax Law in Times of Crisis and Recovery), we hope to publish a volume based on the papers presented in the conference and have a prima facie expectation that all papers will be included although this is not an absolute requirement.

Abstracts of up to 500 words should be sent to by 15 January 2023.
