The Shadow Economy, Tax Evasion and Social Norms
Economists are analyzing issues such as the shadow economy, tax evasion, corruption or social benefit fraud since the late 1960s. These ongoing research efforts have contributed, among other things, to a better understanding of why such behavior patterns occur, what extend they may have, how they may be traced, how they can be handled and what their impact on welfare may be over time.
The conference aims at bringing together researchers working in these areas with a view to explore and discuss recent advances in the field and to increase awareness with respect to the subject in general.
Researchers working in these areas are therefore invited to submit papers or abstracts.
