About Tax Justice Europe

 

Tax Justice Europe (TJ-E) is the European regional hub of the Global Alliance for Tax Justice (GATJ) — , a movement of civil society organisations, trade unions and activists, united in campaigning for transparency and tax justice.

 

Our vision
 

We aim for a world where transparency and fair tax policies counteract inequalities within and between nations, and generate the public funding needed to ensure human rights - including the rights of women and vulnerable groups, a safe and sound environment, adequate social protection and high-quality public services for all.

 

Mission and aims

  • TJ-E’s aims are to: affirm the role and obligation of governments to implement progressive and distributive tax policies; mobilise domestic resources for public services and other vital government functions; strengthen state accountability and the social contract; reduce state dependence on aid and debt financing; correct the power imbalance between citizens and multinational corporations;

  • TJ-E supports these aims by: exposing the negative impact of tax injustices on ordinary people and our families around the world – from the South to the North; taking transformative actions and campaigning for solutions to end tax injustices; building a global movement to increase awareness and solidarity around tax justice issues;

  • With the following goals: an end to secrecy and more public accountability for companies; international tax rules that are fair for all countries; progressive and sufficiently resourced tax systems; public investment in services and sustainable development.

 

Purpose and role of TJ-E

TJ-E works for transformative, yet specific changes to global and European policies, institutions, rules and structures to promote transparency and tax justice. As the European member of GATJ, TJ-E focuses on creating change by influencing European governments, companies, organizations and institutions.
