Tax, finance and development
Since 2020, I am tax programme leader at CPB Netherlands Bureau for Economic Policy Analysis. I am also a member of the Sustainable Finance Lab (a Dutch network that develops ideas for a more sustainable financial sector) and the BEPS Monitoring Group (a global network of tax specialists that makes recommendations for global tax reform). All views expressed on this website are my own.
I completed a PhD on taxation and development and published various peer-reviewed articles and book chapters on tax, financing for development, and corporate responsibility. This website contains some of my comments on tax issues in Dutch media, such as newspapers FD and AD and TV programmes Zembla and EenVandaag, and English media, such as Tax Notes and ICIJ. For key comments on global minimum taxes, see my blogs A crazy kind of subsidy and Jersey and Barbados could be big winners of BEPS 2.0.
Previously, I have been senior policy advisor at Oxfam, research manager for the Sustainable Finance Lab, policy advisor at the Dutch central bank, and researcher at the Centre for Research on Multinational Corporations (SOMO).
