We are doing science for policy
The Joint Research Centre (JRC) is the European Commission's science and knowledge service which employs scientists to carry out research in order to provide independent scientific advice and support to EU policy.
Sara Riscado, from the JRC Fiscal Policy Analysis team, made a presentation on the paper "Measuring the fiscal and equity of tax evasion in the EU: cross-country evidence using microsimulation modelling" at the 5th International Conference on "The Shadow Economy, Tax Evasion and Informal Labor".
The paper, co-authored with Salvador Barrios, Bent Greve, M. Azhar Hussein, Alari Paulus and Fidel Picos, presents the results of two country studies – Denmark and Estonia – concerning the estimation of individual measures of income underreporting and tax evasion. Sara Riscado also discussed the paper “Income Inequality and the Shadow Economy” by Aziz Berdiev.
The 5th Shadow Conference is organised by the GRAPE (Group for Research in APplied Economics), at the University of Warsaw, Poland. The Conference aims at bringing together researchers working in the field of analysing, understanding and tracing the shadow economy, tax evasion, informal labor, money laundering, corruption and illegal economy.
