Workshop Call for Papers: Behavioural Insights for Taxation

27th and 28th October 2016
Manchester Metropolitan University Business School, Manchester

We are holding an interdisciplinary international workshop examining research and its application to taxation administration and policy. The themes listed below provide a number of perspectives from which speakers and delegates can examine how policy and systems can incorporate a range of taxpayers’ behavioural patterns, social circumstances and drivers, in order to achieve their social objectives.

The demands on administrative systems have changed rapidly in recent years, with new sources of information, devolution of responsibilities, changes in working patterns and greater international connections pushing systems to reconfigure. The incorporation of behavioural insights from across different sectors of the academic society is critical to this process.

Given this context, we are calling for evidence based papers from a range of academic fields (not limited to Economics, Law, and Psychology) which can cross academic borders and help shape policy in diverse tax authority frameworks.

• Applying Behavioural Economics to Taxation Policy and Administration
• Decentralisation of Taxation Policy and Administration,
• Uncertainty and Trust in Taxation,
• Behavioural Interventions in Call Centres and Alternative Support Mechanisms,
• Company Life cycle and fiscal relevance,
• Small businesses and the taxation system,
• Targeting policy and interventions.

We invite the submission of extended abstracts (between 350 and 700 words) by
29th August 2016. Please include name(s), e-mail addresses and affiliations.

Following a notification of acceptance, a full paper will be required by
Monday 4th October 2016.

Speakers will have 30 minutes for presentations, with 10 minutes for discussion.

Please send abstracts and enquiries about attendance to;
Dr Matthew Gobey, Manchester Metropolitan University,
