Tax avoidance: a necessary evil?

Tax avoidance. A complex issue, hated by many, understood by few. With his talk, Alexander challenges dogmas to illustrate how chasing corporations for their taxes makes politicians popular, not successful.
Alexander Stylianoudis was born and raised in Geneva. He is currently studying Criminology and Sociology at the University of Kent, and has a particular interest in financial crimes and the socio-economic influence of corporations. His research will take him to California, Geneva and London, to study the various fiscal methods used both in tax planning and tax avoidance. Alexander aims to present a neutral, but thought provoking approach to his talk in which he will highlight the inconvenient truth of tax avoidance.
