A few words for the Faculty ...

The JMC "EU Tax Policy and Administration" (2018-2021) is hosted at the Law School of the Aristitle University of Thessaloniki (AUTh). The Chair aims at the development of teaching and research on EU tax law and decision-making system with a specific focus on the fundamental concepts of EU Tax Policy and Administration allows for a new look on the benefits of European integration, a look based on academically verified evidence that will enhance the dialogue and the cooperation between the academia and the civil society, in matters which are nowadays more crucial than never.


A few words about what we do...

The Chair's activities (teaching, research, events, publications) combine (a) the theory and methodology of EU Tax Policy and Administration with (b) the involvement of academics and practitioners (tax professionals, accountants, advisors or certified auditors etc.) with specific knowledge and experience in handling EU tax issues throughout the learning process.


A few words about the Jean Monnet schedule...

The Chair's courses include a) undergraduate courses EU tax and customs law, b) postgraduate courses on tax law III and EU tax law, c) Erasmus undergraduate courses on tax law and d) cross-sectoral courses on Government Policy Law (Cross-institutional Master "Law and Finance" AUTH and University of Macedonia, Post-graduate).

Σκοπός της Έδρας - Chair's core aims   

Σκοπός της έδρας Jean Monnet είναι η εν γένει προώθηση της ακαδημαϊκής έρευνας και διδασκαλίας στα ζητήματα της φορολογικής πολιτικής και διοίκησης, τα οποία τοποθετούνται στην κορυφή της πολιτικής ατζέντας των θεσμικών οργάνων της ΕΕ, ωστόσο στην Ελλάδα ακόμα βρίσκονται σε πολύ πρώιμο στάδιο. 

The main rationale behind the project is to provide an impetus for extending and deepening the academic analysis and debate on an issue which had been on the political agenda of the EU institutions on taxation, but, at the same time, had been overseen by the academic world especially in Greece, where no specific emphasis is put on the issues of EU tax law.  


The first aspect of the Chair's purpose is to enhance the limited, so far, academic work, in terms of teaching and research, with regard to EU Tax Policy and Administration, by increasing the interest and deepening the knowledge in the field of studies related to EU tax law.


The second aspect of the Chair's purpose is to address the University's outward orientation by providing the general public, as well as specialised groups of stakeholders in the public and private sector, information and specialised knowledge on issues regarding EU Tax Policy and Administration, as a means of interpreting the recent and rapid tax developments in the EU.


There will be five already existing courses (both undergraduate and postgraduate) that will be completely restructured, modernised and updated in terms of contents, didactic tools and teaching methodology.


A summer school will be established while a new module on tax consciousness is going to be created as a "pilot" program initially at universities and, at a next stage, at schools, which should also cover core principles of EU tax law.


Various activities will take place during the programme regarding EU tax law, such as conferences, moot courts, seminars, scientifc workshops, publications (articles and books), tax flashes and tax newsletters, in order for the academic work to be disseminated.


The core aim is a) the actual and active promotion of EU tax law in Greece, where limited progress has been made up until now, in this scientific field, b) the creation of a custom-made LL.M program in Greece wholly dedicated to EU and International Tax law, which currently does not exist, c) the reorganization, update and enrichment of the existing modules of tax law with an EU orientation and d) the systemization and modernization of all the respective academic tools.

Στη φωτογραφία απεικονίζεται η «Εξηκοστή»,  μια στήλη, στην οποία έγραφαν τα ποσά που πλήρωνε κάθε μέλος της Α΄ Αθηναϊκής Συμμαχίας..Έτσι, υπήρχε διαφάνεια και κάθε πόλη γνώριζε την οικονομική συμμετοχή των υπολοίπων συμμάχων.  Ονομάστηκε έτσι επειδή το 1/60 της εισφοράς πήγαινε στον ναό της θεάς Αθηνάς. Ο Περικλής με αυτά τα χρήματα έχτισε την Ακρόπολη. Κάποιοι ισχυρίστηκαν ότι έγινε κατάχρηση. Ο Περικλής απάντησε ότι, από τη στιγμή που η Αθήνα προστάτευε αποτελεσματικά τα μέλη της συμμαχίας από τους Πέρσες, μπορούσε να διαθέσει τα χρήματα όπως εκείνη έκρινε, χωρίς να δίνει λογαριασμό στους συμμάχους. Πηγή: Μηχανή του Χρόνου
