International Tax Law & Policy (OECD, UN & Country Practices)

The Dynamism of International Tax Law

The theory and practice of international tax law has always been dynamic, as it involves the interaction of at least two states’ tax laws, which are constantly changing, through the medium of tax treaties. The concerted, intergovernmental response following the public outcry against aggressive tax planning through the OECD/G20 BEPS project has only increased this dynamism. This means it is increasingly important for international tax practitioners–professionals and administrators – to understand the technical details. This is also true of policy makers who are engaged in the process of negotiating tax treaties.

Who should attend?

Lawyers, accountants, economists, tax policymakers, and tax administrators, with basic tax knowledge of their country’s tax system, who are interested in achieving a comprehensive and detailed understanding of the most important issues and approaches concerning the interpretation and application of tax treaties, and a strong foundation in transfer pricing.


The Excellence Course will be available as a single, certificate course, and as an elective part of the LLM in International and European Tax Law. The number of students will be limited to a maximum of 15, who shall be selected on the basis of merit.
