The economic effects of the current VAT rules for passenger transport

An international research team, led by CASE and comprised of the Institute for Higher Studies in Vienna and the Transport and Mobility Leuven, recently completed a 2-year project on the economic effects of the current VAT rules for passenger transport in the EU, and delivered the final draft of the Study on the economic effects of the current VAT rules for passenger transport. The report is part of the work of the Consortium coordinated by CPB of the Netherlands that has provided advice on VAT issues for the past four years. The outcome of the consultations with stakeholders and European Commission, which are scheduled to take place over the next few months, will determine which proposals included in the report may be put to the agenda of the European Council for VAT reform in this crucial sector of the economy and society of the European Union. read more » about The economic effects of the current VAT rules for passenger transport

Inequalities in a globalized economy

The current mainstream economic debate on inequalities is determined mainly by the situation in individual high-income economies. We also talk about the problem in the context of crisis of a traditional welfare state, bearing in mind original inefficiencies, consequences of population aging, and consequences of globalization – pointed dr Marek Dabrowski, who appeared as a keynote speaker of the conference ‘Dialogue on Inequalities’ that took place between 21 and 22 January 2015 in Istanbul. The event, organized by United Nations Development Programme (UNDP), addressed the problem of inequality from different perspectives. The speakers tackled issues such as global and regional perspectives on inequalities, inequalities in Southeast Europe and the Former USSR, unpacking inequalities in the region (“inequality corners”), ways of strengthening the process of applying political and economic analyses results to policies, and how to use programming in addressing inequalities. read more » about Inequalities in a globalized economy

CASE ranked one of the top 3 think tanks in CEE!

We are honored to be once again at the top of the Global Think Tanks list, not only in Central and Eastern Europe, but in social policy, amongst small think tanks, and in international development and international economic policy. We salute the Carnegie Center in Moscow for reaching the number 1 position in CEE, given the difficult environment in which they work, and are happy to see our fellow Polish Institute PISM is also in the top three. CASE’s high rankings across the board are a testament to the hard work that our researchers and fellows put in day after day, and we hope that this report increases our visibility and impact internationally. The events of the past year have shown that now, more than ever, Europe and the world needs the Polish point of view in economic and social transformation. And CASE is always ready to present that view. read more » about CASE ranked one of the top 3 think tanks in CEE!
