Next Monday at McGill: Karie Davis-Nozemack, Applying Sustainability to Tax

Continuing the McGill tax policy colloquium next week will be Karie Davis-Nozemack, Associate Professor of Law & Ethics at Georgia Tech Scheller College of Business. Prof. Davis-Nozemack will discuss her forthcoming article with Kathryn Kisska-Schulze, which considers whether and how tax policy can support the quality of life, social justice and cohesion, diversity, democratic rights, broad participation, and social capital and individual capabilities that societies wish to sustain. The paper will be published in the Florida Tax Review and it follows Prof. Davis-Nozemack's earlier work with Robert Bird, Tax Avoidance as a Sustainability Problem, 151(4) J. Bus. Ethics 1009 (Sept. 2018), which examined tax avoidance in the context of corporate sustainability practices.

As always, the colloquium is supported by a grant made by the law firm Spiegel Sohmer, for the purpose of fostering an academic community in which learning and scholarship may flourish. The land on which we gather is the traditional territory of the Kanien’keha:ka (Mohawk), a place which has long served as a site of meeting and exchange amongst nations.

The talk and discussion will take place from 3-5 pm in New Chancellor Day Hall room 316; all are welcome to attend. The complete colloquium schedule is below and here.
