(Maarten) de Wilde, programme director of the ESL Bachelor in Tax Law and chair of the Tax Law section, will publicly accept his appointment as full professor of International and European Tax Law by giving an inaugural lecture (in Dutch) on ‘On the future of business income taxation in Europe’ (‘Om De toekomst van de belastingheffing van ondernemingswinsten in Europa’).

In his lecture, he will discuss the highly topical issue of how to tax multinational profits. He will explain how profit tax systems have become outdated in today’s era of market liberalisation, globalisation and digitalisation and how he believes Europe should address these developments.
