Sustainable Urban and Rural Planning

In order to contribute with new insights, SNS will launch a research project on building societies through urban planning. . The project will start in the fall of 2018 and last for three years.
Taxes in a Globalised World

How do these changes affect the efficiency of the tax system and its redistributive function? In order to contribute new knowledge, SNS launched the Taxes in a Globalised World research project in the spring of 2019, which will continue for three years.
