Cardiff Interdisciplinary Taxation Research Group

We aim to be an international centre known for high quality scholarly and policy relevant research on taxation and the administration of taxation.

The Cardiff Interdisciplinary Taxation Research Group aims to be an international centre known for high quality scholarly and policy relevant research on taxation and the administration of taxation.

Given the central role taxation systems play in shaping economic and societal conditions, by examining emerging agendas the group’s activities contribute to the School’s Public Value philosophy.

The group is jointly coordinated by Carla Edgley and Dr Dennis De Widt of the Accounting and Finance section of Cardiff Business School.


The purpose of the group, building on existing areas of expertise within the University, is to act as a focal point for tax researchers within the University and external parties.

Various members of the group have links with important external bodies including Welsh Treasury and Welsh Revenue Authority, and the accounting, tax and legal professions.

Further, the members have established links with tax researchers working elsewhere in Wales, the UK and internationally.

The group has three core objectives:

  • raise the national and international visibility of tax research conducted at Cardiff University
  • serve as a platform in Cardiff Business School that facilitates cross-disciplinary research on taxation across Sections and across University Schools
  • increase opportunities for collaborative work between the group’s members and external parties, leading to the generation of policy relevant research and supporting the School’s Public Value philosophy
