In March 2016, Kent Business School’s Accountability Research hosted an international seminar on Tax and Poverty, part of a series of seminars called Architects of a Better World: Building the Post 2015 Business Engagement Architecture. This came as a direct response to the United Nations Global Compact’s call for business and business schools to support sustainabile development more specifically the Sustainable Development Goals. The global crisis in tax avoidance and its impact on poverty particularly in the developing world has become a matter of public debate. The seminar, the first of its kind in Ireland, brought together speakers from different organisations to discuss the problem and propose possible solutions.
