CIDSE wants to put Tax Justice at the heart of development. Basic service provision should be guaranteed by predictable and sound sources of public finance. Taxation is the foremost of these sources.

Additional to its revenue generation potential, taxation also serves other important functions. However, developing countries have been unable, or even prevented, from effectively mobilizing resources domestically and stopping capital flight.

CIDSE analyses causes for tax evasion and illicit capital flight and works to influence international financial governance and architecture to promote international tax justice. In our advocacy we call for instance for a stronger role of the UN in international tax cooperation, we push for a greater inter- state judicial cooperation and draw attention to the specific needs of vulnerable economies moving away from tax haven status.
