We are delighted to announce the appointment of Prof. Johann Hattingh as our new Chief Editor for the Bulletin for International Taxation.
Prof. Hattingh is an associate professor of international taxation at the University of Cape Town and an advocate of the High Court of South Africa. Prior to that, between academic postings, he practised in the field of international taxation, mostly with Pricewaterhouse-Coopers. Given his experience in academia, tax practice and the judiciary, Prof. Hattingh is well placed to oversee the broad scope and high-quality content of IBFD’s oldest and most widely recognized journal.
Prof. Hattingh has published extensively on international and South African tax law and has conducted significant historical research on the origins of tax treaties in the German states of the 19th century. He is an executive board member of the South African branch of the International Fiscal Association and, since 2001, has been a contributor to several IBFD publications, including the aforementioned Bulletin.
In addition to the appointment of Prof. Hattingh, the Bulletin is pleased to announce another distinguished addition to its editorial team. Belema Obuoforibo CTA ATT (Fellow), Director of the IBFD Knowledge Centre, member of IBFD’s Executive Board and Chairperson of the Centre for Studies in African Taxation at IBFD, joins Brian J. Arnold, Michael Lang and Richard Vann on the Editorial Board of the Bulletin.
Under the stewardship of Prof. Hattingh, and with the continued support of assistant editor Mike Hammer and the respected counsel of the Editorial Board, the Bulletin is poised for a promising future and remains true to its commitment of delivering the most incisive and relevant analysis and commentary on international taxation.
The Bulletin welcomes articles from either an academic or a practical perspective that would be of interest to an international readership of tax professionals, lawyers, executives, government officials and scholars.
