Abstract

This volume has identified and analysed the growing political, regulatoryand cultural challenges to aggressive tax avoidance strategies thatmultinational corporations (MN Cs) have been forced to confront over pastdecades. These include increasingly sophisticated legal instruments to clawback offshored revenue, and a renewed political imperative to plug leaks inthe corporate tax base in the wake of the Financial Crisis (FC). In additionto the civil society organisations and legal developments discussed inearlier chapters, whistleblowers and journalists are emerging as importantactors in the international tax regime, subjecting the tax strategies of someof the world's most profitable companies to unprecedented public scrutiny.
