On September 7, 2017, Dr. Joras Ferwerda (Utrecht University) chaired a COFFERS-themed panel at the ECPR conference called ‘Fighting Tax Avoidance and Tax Crimes in the European Union’. Other COFFERS-participants were Miroslav Palansky (Charles University Prague), Lukas Hakelberg (University of Bamberg) and Ruth Lynch and Martin Joseph Laheen (both University of Limerick). Each of the four attending COFFERS-partners presented relevant ongoing research on tax evasion. The panel was open to all participants of the ECPR conference and was well attended. Dr. Ainsley Elbra (University of Sydney) acted as outside discussant to give the COFFERS-members feedback from outside the consortium. The ECPR (European Consortium for Political Research) General Conference is the main academic event for political scientists in Europe.
