Donor support might prevent outright state collapse, but has to date not contributed much to develop fiscal capacity in fragile states. The important relationship between state-building and domestic revenue mobilization is often neglected. International initiatives often end up putting these countries on an artificial life-support system fed by foreign aid.

This webinar takes stock of current evidence on what works and what needs to change to build tax systems in weak states.

The event is organised by Tax Justice Network-NorwayChr. Michelsen Institute (CMI), Norwegian Institute of International affairs (NUPI) and the TaxCapDev-network.
