PhD students and early careers researchers were invited to submit a paper for the annual Doctoral Conference, to be held by the Oxford University Centre for Business Taxation on Monday 13 and Tuesday 14 September 2021. Due to the uncertainty regarding ongoing travel restrictions, we held the conference online again this year, with 4 papers presented on each day.
We welcomed submissions on any topics related to business taxation in its broadest sense, including papers from economics, law, accounting and other disciplines, as well as interdisciplinary contributions. Preference was given to current PhD students, but we also encouraged early careers researchers within three years of completing their PhD to submit their papers.
This annual conference offers presenters the opportunity to receive feedback in a friendly environment from Michael Devereux, Centre Director, and other leading academics and CBT researchers.
The programme for this year's event is detailed below.
The Best Paper Award and prize of £500 was awarded to Paul Organ (University of Michigan) for his paper Citizenship and taxes: Evaluating the effects of the U.S. tax system on individuals’ citizenship decisions.
