Mr. Nyamori is a Lecturer at the Faculty of Law, University of Nairobi, and Founder and Member of the Committee on Fiscal Studies of that university. He is an Advocate of the High Court of Kenya, and a Certified Public Accountant of Kenya.

Mr. Nyamori will be based in IBFD’s Amsterdam office during April 2023. Together with the CSAT in-house research team, he will conduct research on emerging issues in taxpayer rights in East Africa. The research project is being overseen by Aisha Aize Isa, Manager of CSAT.

We are delighted to welcome Mr. Nyamori to Amsterdam”, says Belema Obuoforibo, Chair of the Centre for Studies in African Taxation, and Member of IBFD’s Executive Board. “Over the past decade, the issue of taxpayer rights has taken on much significance. Also, with advances in modern technology, there is much potential for a widening of the existing powers of tax administrations. This makes the subject of taxpayer rights even more compelling. Since 2015, IBFD has led the way in publishing authoritative research on taxpayer rights, for example, via the Observatory on the Protection of Taxpayers’ Rights (OPTR). With its focus on Africa, CSAT is building on the excellent work being done under the OPTR. Together with Mr. Nyamori, CSAT will produce a compelling and in-depth report on the East African situation, including an analysis of the current regimes within that region, plus, where relevant, our proposals for reform.”

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 invited for 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.
