Impact Talk from Oxfam Novib
Power of Citizens’ Voices Series: Tax Justice and the Fight Against Inequality
This is the third of four episodes in the Power of Citizens’ Voices series, “Tax Justice and the Fight Against Inequality”. In this series we talk with civil society leaders, activists and colleagues from around the world about how raising the voices of citizens drives impact on critical topics like conflict and security, the right to food, and securing the financing needed for development.
To fight inequality and defeat poverty it’s crucial that we make taxation and government spending fair, transparent and responsive to the needs of citizens. In this episode, we look at the issue of tax justice through conversations with from Roselie Schonewille (Inequality Campaigner, Oxfam Novib) on why this matters, Jasper van Teeffelen (Researcher, SOMO) on unfair tax treaties involving The Netherlands, and Regina Navuga (Program Coordinator, Financing for Development Programme, SEATINI Uganda) about the struggle for a fairer fiscal system in Uganda.
