Welcome to the webpage of the academic conference “Corruption, Tax Evasion and Institutions", which was held in Riga, Latvia.
The conference took place on May 11 – 13, 2017 at the Stockholm School of Economics in Riga (SSE Riga). Its aim was to promote and diffuse high quality economic research on the mechanisms driving corruption and tax evasion, their relationships with institutions and their consequences on economic outcomes. In addition to parallel sessions and keynote speeches, the conference hosted a panel where economic scholars exchanged their understanding of corruption and tax evasion with policy makers and leading journalists who were at the core of the Panama Papers investigations. The conference was organized by the Baltic International Centre for Economic Policy Studies (BICEPS), the Stockholm School of Economics in Riga (SSE Riga), the Stockholm Institute of Transition Economics (SITE) and Centre for Media Studies at SSE Riga.
