June, 2016

The ODI has been carrying out a project that investigates the relationship between taxation and social protection. Does taxation necessarily alleviate poverty and/or inequality? Can it, despite good intentions, exacerbate inequality? The outcomes include a guidance note that provides information on policy makers, a livestream video of an event on the impact of taxes and transfers and a working paper on different efforts put into including social protection in taxation.
