University Leiden: Free online-course “Rethinking International Tax Law”

The tax law department of the University Leiden has developed an online-course in the field if international tax. It’s free and may be of interest to non-tax people – e.g. ngo’s, journalists, politicians and activists – who want to understand the backgrounds of the present debate on global tax. The course was developed by Prof. Sjoerd Douma and – behind the scenes – Judith Reijnen. It is an amazing opportunity for ‘ordinary people’ to learn about this important field of law.
