Does Nordic tax aid contribute to recuding inequality?
The Nordic Alliance for Tax Justice is commissioning a study on the Nordic tax aid channeled through the International Monetary Fund and the World Bank.
Nordic countries are committed to supporting progressive taxation as part of the Addis Ababa Action Agenda. Also, in the Addis Tax Initiative (ATI) declaration 2025, Nordic countries have committed to promote revenue generation through equitable, efficient and effective tax systems. ATI members recognize that domestic revenues from taxes and non-tax sources are the most reliable and sustainable way of financing the 2030 Agenda, and that tax systems can strengthen gender equality, empower minorities, protect the environment, and reduce inequalities.
A significant amount of Nordic Tax Aid goes to supporting projects by the IMF and the World Bank. With this report we wish to assess whether the values of the ATI are embedded when aid is channeled through these international institutions.
