WCO Publishes 2015 Picard Research Conference Call for Papers

30 enero 2015

The World Customs Organization has published the Call for Papers for the 10th annual Picard Research Conference which will take place in Baku, Azerbaijan, 8-10 September 2015.

Researchers are invited to submit their research in response to the Call for Papers for possible presentation at the conference. Papers should focus on Customs or, more globally, the regulation, dynamics, and practices of the international trade of goods.

Although papers can be submitted on any topic directly or indirectly related to Customs, researchers seeking additional guidance could consider writing on global value chains (GVC), taxation and other revenue matters, and smuggling.

GVC is increasingly discussed by Customs professionals due to the growing dispersion of production processes at the international level and, as a consequence, the growing circulation of intermediary goods. More focus on GVC would identify new ways of analyzing the participation of Customs in international trade and globalization.

Taxation and other revenue matters include, but are not limited to, classification and valuation, exchange of information, de minimis, excise taxes, and VAT.

The smuggling topic includes smuggler practices and enforcement against illegal trade, as well as security controls (such those related to passengers and weapons).

The Call for Papers is available here.
