Green European Foundation, with the support of Green Foundation Ireland, organised a half-day seminar in Dublin on the topic of corporate tax policy on November 13th. A range of speakers from Ireland and elsewhere addressed the technical and political aspects of this complex topic, with some common ground identified but also with some political division on the steps to be taken. I attended as rapporteur and my report is available here (PDF).
The speakers were Dr Sheila Killian (University of Limerick), Dr Rodrigo Fernandez (SOMO), Prof Jim Stewart, Damien English TD (Fine Gael), Michael McGrath TD (Fianna Fáil) and Eamon Ryan (Green Party). The seminar was chaired by John Bowman.
