In this workshop, we address the institutional and fiscal processes involved in modes of taxation and the hierarchies (and exclusions) of welfare distribution across Europe’s global empires. We highlight the ways in which particularities of economic governance across European empires have shaped forms of inequality in the present and their ongoing implications for issues of contemporary political economy.
The workshop will involve short talks from the contributors of a recent volume, Imperial Inequalities: The Politics of Economic Governance across European Empires, published by Manchester University Press. This will include broader discussion of the contemporary relevance of these arguments for tax policy nationally and globally.
