The Institute of Tax Law at the University of Bern offers a broad spectrum of lectures dealing with both national and international tax law. This approach provides students with a solid education focused on tax law that covers the fundamental aspects of national tax law, its international dimensions (and European interconnections) and specific individual topics relevant to professional practice. Various courses are offered on a regular basis (see “Lectures” for further information).
OECD FORUM 2017
As part of the "Introduction to Swiss & International Taxation" course in the spring semester 2017, Prof. Marantelli took the students on a study excursion to the OECD Forum in Paris. The participants gained insight about the functioning of the OECD and learned about recent developments in international tax law. The central focus of the forum was on “Bridging Divides” at a time when increasing populism and nationalism, historically low levels of trust, the rapid pace of technological development and the continued effects of the crisis are having a disruptive impact on our societies and economies. The OECD Forum highlighted the importance of continuing our focus on developing more integrated, and inclusive economies and societies.
