With rising inequalities and during a time of fiscal consolidation, the debate on wealth taxation is gaining momentum both in academic and in policy debates. A workshop was organised on the topic by the European Commission in November 2014. Participants included members of academia, national authorities and international organisations. The purpose of the workshop was to look at the challenges of wealth taxation in the EU. In this publication you will find a summary of the discussions during this workshop.
