Tax treaties are the building blocks of the international tax system. Many argue that, designed by and for the ‘rich countries’ club’, these treaties inappropriately restrict the taxing rights of low-income countries, and distribute tax revenue from high- to low-income countries. This talk explains why the international tax system is problematic for low-income countries and identifies lines of investigation for further research.
