Fiscal Policy & Green Taxation in the EU

The design of fiscal policy on the European level is one of the major challenges in the European integration process. Our objective is  to provide research-based policy advice to support the process of fiscal harmonization in Europe. In this context, our multidisciplinary research approach covers topics such as tax implications of EU-wide labour supply mobility, the role of the European Court of Justice in fiscal policy, options for integrating reforms, for example a common European unemployment insurance, and the interplay between national and European tax policy. We also investigate the consequences of European fiscal policy for worldwide tax competition.
