The Sanford E. Sarasohn Conference on Critical Issues in Comparative and International Taxation II: Taxation and Migration

Friday, March 31, 2017 -
8:30am to 5:15pm

John K. Pruellage Courtroom

The Center for International & Comparative Law and the Saint Louis University Law Journal present the symposium, The Sanford E. Sarasohn Conference on Critical Issues in Comparative and International Taxation II: Taxation and Migration. 

As ever growing numbers of individuals seek economic and political refuge in Europe and North America, and as increasing numbers of individuals and businesses seek refuge from the tax burdens of their home jurisdictions in lower tax jurisdictions, the resulting immigration and emigration strain the national economies of affected countries causing them to modify their taxation rules and structures.  This conference explores the effects of taxation on migration and the effects of migration on taxation.
