IDS Convening Space University of Sussex

Do women and men experience tax systems the same way? What exactly do we mean when we talk about taxation in the context of Africa? And how can we ensure that tax systems at the local government level are equitable? In this seminar, the panelists will answer these questions by discussing their research on the gender dimensions of taxation in markets in Nigeria and Zimbabwe.
