Introduction

This course aims to increase participants' understanding of the major difficulties that governments encounter when creating, implementing, and overseeing a contemporary tax system. It provides a succinct explanation of the theoretical foundations of tax policymaking and goes into great detail on its application and practice with a focus on the region the course is intended for.
