Taxation, Resource Mobilisation and State Performance

This paper presents the findings of research on the political economy of taxation undertaken in Zambia, Rwanda, Mozambique, Uganda, Tanzania, Democratic Republic of Congo, Afghanistan, the Philippines and Colombia. The author identifies how patterns of taxation contribute to state capacity, and also explores the political economy of taxation. The paper then assesses how aid flows and multilateral donor reforms affects patterns of state-building before considering the links between taxation and production strategies.
