ECONOMIC SUSTAINABILITY IN EAST AFRICA: Framing the Linkages Between Public Debt and Tax Justice

Activity Date: October 4, 2022
Description

To understand the implications of debt for tax justice in East Africa, Africa Centre for People Institutions and Society (Acepis) and East African Tax and Governance Network (EATGN) sought to explore the implications of debt unsustainability on four major issues in tax justice discourse: i) tax burden, ii) IFFs and harmful tax practices, iii) economic growth and resource redistribution, and iv) empowerment and inclusion of citizen voices in fiscal policy making. The research aimed to build on the existing body of literature by examining and framing the links that exists between increasing public debt stocks (and debt repayment obligations) and fiscal injustice in the East African region.
