Shadow Conference 2023

The Shadow Economy, Tax Evasion and Public Finance


The 8th Shadow Conference: The Shadow Economy, Tax Evasion and Public Finances will be held on 21-24 September 2023 at Tallinn University of Technology, Tallinn, Estonia.


The conference aims at bringing together researchers studying issues such as the shadow economy, tax compliance, money laundering, corruption, formal and informal institutions, and psychological aspects of tax behaviour. One focus area is the challenges for tax compliance after the Covid crisis, the invasion of Ukraine and higher energy prices, which have impoverished many households and put public finances under strain.


The conference will provide a great opportunity for scholars across disciplines to explore and discuss recent research in this field.


You can find the call for papers attached.
