Global Asset Registry workshop – 1-2 July, Paris: submit your paper

The Independent Commission for the Reform of International Corporate Taxation (ICRICT) held a conference in New York in September of 2018 to discuss a roadmap to a GAR, as described in this declaration published on 25 March 2019.

Based on these initial steps, ICRICT, the World Inequality Lab project, Tax Justice Network, and Transparency International are co-hosting a workshop to develop the framework for a Global Asset Registry in Paris on July 1-2.

It is by invitation only. We will of course share the fruits of the workshop as we develop them further, but for now participation during Day 1 is open to anyone whose paper has been accepted.

You can submit your proposal and original, high-quality papers to present at the Global Asset Registry workshop using this online form.

Please send these by May 15, 2019 on the following issues to be discussed on Day 1:

  • What would the ideal Global Asset Registry look like, long-term? (be creative, think big)

  • What registries on hard assets (real estate, art, gold, etc) do we have and what could be improved? How much information do they register and disclose on beneficial owners?

  • What registries on intangibles (securities, crypto-currencies) do we have and what could be improved? How much information do they register and disclose on beneficial owners?

  • Publicity vs confidentiality: who should have access to the GAR information? Should it depend on whether the owner is a public figure? Should aggregate data (a person’s total wealth) be public?

  • What would the Global Asset Registry be useful for?
