Group I: Tax Governance

The Principal Researcher of this Group is Prof. Dr. Ana Paula Dourado. 

This Group aims to investigate the current challenges that collection of taxes brings to the global, regional and national economies of OECD, EU, BRICSs and Developing countries (especially Lusophone). It aims to put forward policy and legal solutions with a global, regional and/or national dimension compliant with the rule-of-law, with the taxpayers’ fundamental rights and with a level playing field among states. Special consideration will be given to the unique difficulties that developing countries face.

This Group will cooperate and simultaneously develop 3 projects during the period 2020-2024:

  • Project 1: Tax governance and validity of global standards
  • Project 2: EU good tax governance as best practice
  • Project 3: Tax Patriotism and Exile 


This research group, led by Prof. Ana Paula Dourado, has produced a significant number of publications in peer-reviewed international journals and edited relevant books in the field, dealing with transnational tax issues. The tax law post-graduate courses and the GREIT Seminars have attracted students from other European countries, in addition to students from Lusophone countries.
