The IBFD Frans Vanistendael Award for International Tax Law
IBFD wishes to promote outstanding scientific research output on international tax law.

Professor Vanistendael is renowned for producing academic content at the highest of scientific standards and has long been distinguished as one of the most far-sighted scholars in the field of international tax law.

In case of doubt, the temporal criterion to ascertain eligibility is the date of the ISBN / ISSN.

The recipient of the 2019 Frans Vanistendael Award for International Tax Law will be selected by an international jury whose composition will be announced shortly.
The jury decides on the winner of the award by a two-thirds majority. In case that a majority cannot be reached after two rounds of votes, the decision is taken by simple majority.
The conferral of the 5th IBFD Frans Vanistendael Award will take place in Amsterdam on 30 April 2019 during the closing ceremony of the Doctoral Meeting of Researchers in International Taxation (DocMIT) and Postdoctoral International Tax Forum (PITF).
