Professional Ethics Network - Unavoidable: tackling the ethics of taxation

Join us on 14th June, for an evening of ethical debate, food and drink. Our PEN events bring together individuals from businesses and professions to discuss a range of current ethical issues.

Date: 14-06-2018
Time: 18:00 - 21:00

Abstract

"What exactly is tax avoidance? Is it always morally wrong or can it be morally justified in certain circumstances?"

Recent tax avoidance scandals, including Amazon, Starbucks and Jimmy Carr, have brought ethics to the forefront of financial debates. Presented by Dr Liz Ellis, this event brings arguments from the philosophical literature to the public debate in an attempt to shed more light on the issues.  There will also be an interactive case study session where everyone will get a chance to have their say!

More information about Dr Ellis can be found on her profile.
