The Global Tax 50: Allison Christians

The International Tax Review has included Professor Allison Christians (H. Heward Stikeman Chair in Tax Law at McGill University) in their 2015 Global Tax 50 - a list of people and organizations that they think have the most influence in the international tax world.

Professor Christians writes extensively on any number of topics related to international taxation in a globalized world, but it was her work on the tax issues of US citizens and US persons abroad  that caught my attention and made me a faithful reader of her blog Tax, Society and Culture.

If you'd like to get better acquainted with her work, she has quite a few papers up on SSRN.  Here are a few titles I encourage you to read if you are interested in a very informed and very thoughtful perspective that may have you thinking a bit differently about the American Diaspora Tax War.

Uncle Sam Wants … Who? A Global Perspective on Citizenship Taxation (2016)

Paperwork and Punishment: It's Time to Fix FBAR (2014)

Drawing the Boundaries of Tax Justice (2013)

Fair Taxation as a Basic Human Right (2009)
