Policy Lead Tax and the International Financial Architecture


About Us
The Tax Justice Network - Africa (TJN-A) is a Pan African research and advocacy organisation that aims to promote socially just, accountable and progressive taxation systems in Africa. We advocates for pro-poor taxation systems and the strengthening of tax regimes to promote domestic resource mobilisation. TJN-A aims to challenge harmful tax policies and practices that favour the wealthy and those that aggravate and perpetuate inequality. We are also a member of the Global Alliance on Tax Justice
As an organisation we seek to mainstream tax justice in the economic policy and development discourse in Africa. TJN-A provides a platform dedicated to enabling African researchers, campaigners and policy makers to cooperate in the struggle against illicit capital flight, tax evasion, tax competition and other harmful trends in tax policy and practice.
PROFILE
It is widely accepted that the current international financial Architecture of global rules that determine the flow of capital between nations is flawed and not fit for purpose. The current weak global regulation encourages aggressive tax evasion and tax avoidance especially by Multinational corporations operating in Africa and wealthy elites and responsible for illicit outflow of resources from Africa amounting to over USD 50billion a year according the report by the high level Panel on Illicit flows from Africa..
International effort to reform the tax rules are yet to yield any tangible results. It is against this backdrop that there is an increased demand for a new more democratically representative global tax governance structure.
Our goal as TJN-A is to contribute to achieving an Inclusive and transparent global regulatory financial framework with a governance structure that curbs Illicit Financial Flows. We do this using the High Level Panel report as our launching pad and pushing for the implementation of its recommendations. Additionally, we push for the formulation and articulation of African positions and the use of African models.
The role of the Policy Lead on Tax and the International Financial Architecture is to challenge existing malpractices through analysis, research, and policy advocacy. This role works in collaboration with TJN-A’s other Policy Leads on Extractives, Inequality, and Investments. The role also contributes to our campaign against Illicit Financial Flows and supports our outreach programmes. This is role is an important contributor to TJN-A’s global advocacy and policy influence agenda that is embedded within our Strategic Plan 2016-2020.
