Visiting Global Scholar
Each year, IBFD invites a distinguished academic to join IBFD Academic as the Visiting Global Scholar at the IBFD headquarters.
The Visiting Global Scholar becomes actively involved in the scientific work of IBFD Academic, as regards teaching, research and further oral and written dissemination of knowledge in tax law. This may include:
- authorship or co-authorship of articles, or guest editorials for our journals
- editorial board work for the academic periodicals, books and other collections managed by IBFD Academic
- presentations in the framework of our internal roundtables and at external scientific events
- lectures to support the teaching commitments and programmes of IBFD Academic
The Visiting Global Scholar’s research agenda is supported by IBFD Academic, ensuring a worldwide exposure. During the tenure of the Visiting Global Scholar, a Distinguished Lecture on a research topic, being developed into a paper to be submitted to an IBFD Academic periodical, is delivered.
The Visiting Global Scholar initiative started in 2013 and has involved many distinguished global scholars. This one-year appointment, by invitation, allows IBFD to benefit from the knowledge and expertise of one of the leading scholars on International Taxation.
