Call for core Technical Working Group to Develop the Feminist Taxation Framework Guide

Deadline:25th October, 2020

We are calling on feminists to express their interest in joining the Technical Working Group supporting the development of a Feminist Taxation Framework guide, an initiative of the Global Alliance for Tax Justice (GATJ) Tax and Gender Working Group together with Akina Mama wa Afrika.

The feminist taxation framework guide on ‘What a gender-responsive taxation framework looks like – The case of Uganda’ for tax justice and gender justice advocates will be used when challenging the role of International Financial Institutions (IFIs) in shaping tax systems. It will demonstrate how to link a global advocacy issue to a national framework in a way that is useful for influencing both in-country and international spaces that they already engage in like the Financing for Development Process, the OECD, etc. This guide will be practical enough to be taken forward by tax justice and gender justice advocates to contribute to changing the tax landscape from a feminist perspective and to challenge the IFIs’ role in shaping it. There has been a challenge of bridging Illicit Financial Flows work to national contexts and this will provide a feminist model of how this is realistically done.

The core technical working group will support a consultant through input into the guide and participation in 2 online work sessions and a virtual validation session on the draft feminist taxation framework, in November and December will be required. 

Due to funding restrictions, we regret we cannot compensate your time financially, but your contributions will be acknowledged in the guide.

If you are interested in joining the core group to develop the framework let Carol, Roosje, and Tricia know by 25th October 2020. You can reach them at Roosje@womankind.org.uk, caroline@globaltaxjustice.org, and twasiima@akinamamawaafrika.org. In order to keep an optimum number of people that we can engage effectively in a virtual consultation, we may not be able to consider all expressions of interest that we receive.
