Ziele, Inhalte und Methode der Lehrveranstaltung

Digitalization has brought about tremendous societal, economic and technological changes and challenges. Whereas the OECD and the EU have been struggling to reach towards a compromise on how to tax the digital economy, especially the Big Tech, some countries have pushed forward with proposals and implementations of national digital taxes.
The aim of this seminar is to discuss a various range of topics and possible solutions with regard to the taxation of the digital economy, among them:
• Taxing the digital economy as a matter of tax justice
• Efforts at OECD level to tax the digital economy
• Digital economy and BEPS measures
• Proposals on digital taxes in the EU
• National digital taxes (most notably: France and Great Britain)
• Compatibility of national solutions with EU state aid law
• (Re-)allocating income from digital services

The seminar will take place at November 19, 2019 and will be held in English. The presentations of the students’ papers will be wrapped up with keynote speeches from Visiting Scholar Prof. Neil H. Buchanan (University of Florida) and an OECD representative. Foreign students and researchers are welcome to apply for this seminar as well.
Take on this unique opportunity to work on one of the most urgent questions of the 21st century in an international and encouraging surrounding!
