Dr Adegboye is a research consultant for the West African Tax Administration Forum (WATAF), and an Associate Professor at Obafemi Awolowo University, Nigeria. He will work with the CSAT research team on a study of the impact of a global minimum tax on the tax incentives regimes of West Africa.

His nomination arises from a research collaboration between CSAT and WATAF. Under this collaboration, both organizations will conduct joint research on tax policy issues concerning West Africa. This research project is overseen by Aisha Aize Isa (Manager, CSAT).

We are pleased to welcome Dr Adegboye to Amsterdam”, says Belema Obuoforibo, Chair of the Centre for Studies in African Taxation, and Member of IBFD’s Executive Board. “The CSAT Fellowship programme is vital for fulfilling CSAT’s mission, which is to provide ground-breaking research on tax policy issues germane to Africa. The programme brings together CSAT’s in-house Africa tax experts and tax researchers from African countries. The research team is supported by IBFD’s Library and Information Centre, one of the largest international tax libraries in the world. With this winning combination, we are certain to provide high-quality research of great value to African tax professionals.”

The CSAT Fellowship is awarded to leading African tax researchers focusing on international tax policy issues. As part of the programme, the CSAT Fellow is granted a research stay at the CSAT offices in Amsterdam, working with our team of Africa tax experts on topics of significant interest to policymakers in Africa.

The output of the research project will be published by IBFD. Its key findings will be discussed during the upcoming Africa Tax Symposium, taking place in Arusha, Tanzania, from 24 to 26 May 2023.
