TJNA-Report-A4_Understanding the role of civil society research in influencing government policies towards fair tax systems

This paper presents an exploratory research project on the role of civil society research evidence in influencing government policies towards fair tax systems in Africa. Through case studies, the researchers interrogated the intersections between the strategic deployment of research evidence to shape tax policy by civil society organisations (CSOs) and the extent of governments’ reliance on this research evidence in designing tax policies.
