Preceded by the film Tax Wars

Re-enchanting hope facing global challenges


Sunday 17 March – 17h00
Espace Pitoëff - Grande Salle
Rue de Carouge 52, 1205 Geneva

The world is facing global challenges: climate emergency, social and economic inequalities, and war. Solutions exist, so why is this urgent transformation so difficult ? Four contemporary thinkers are invited to discuss new perspectives.

Faced with such vital issues for the whole of humanity, individual or collective inaction is unthinkable. It would also be irresponsible, because there are solutions for building a fair and sustainable world. So it is time to act.

For its closing discussion, the FIFDH is inviting four contemporary thinkers who, from cooperation to the building of new coalitions, from reflection on the uncertainty of our human condition to thoughts on hope, shed light on new ways of achieving this much-needed and urgent transformation of our world.

Tax Wars

It is estimated that US$ 600 billion in tax revenue are lost each year due to tax abuses by multinational companies and wealthy individuals. The pandemic and the war in Ukraine have shed an unprecedented light on the harsh realities of growing income inequality in a globalised economy. Economists and politicians such as Joseph Stiglitz, Eva Joly, Thomas Piketty and Jayati Ghosh are demanding that multinationals pay their taxes. By following their struggle and exploring possible avenues for recovering hidden wealth, Tax Wars sheds light on the underlying mechanisms and trends in the fight for global tax justice.
