Ireland, Europe and the Multinationals: implications of the Irish national tax-based industrial policy for Ireland and the European Union

In partnership with TASC

Popular anger across Europe at MNE tax evasion threatens the Irish development model. Ireland has always depended on FDI (foreign direct investment), but in recent years attracting FDI appears to have become dependent on favourable tax treatment. A series of expert papers examine: the nature of Irish tax policy; the quantity and quality of employment generated by FDI; the implications for EU regional and industrial policy. Final report expected by May-June 2018.
