Under the leadership of  Dr. Parita Shah and through funding from the Open Society Initiative for Eastern Africa (OSIEA) and Oxfam Kenya, the Committee has already carried out a feasibility study and curriculum development that will result in the setting up of short courses and a future M.A. program on Financing for Development. Our study showed that across the African continent and globally, there’s great interest from professionals, academics, students, as well as parliamentarians and judges to learn more on issues surrounding fiscal studies, tax and human rights as well as development. The Committee and University of Nairobi have developed 10 short courses that include:

• Finance in Africa: Understanding the Context

• Financing Development

• Finance and Gender

• Taxpayer Rights

• Tax treaties

• Researching Taxation and Development

• Illicit Financial Flow

• Transfer Pricing

• Taxation of the Extractive Sector

• Understanding Financial Data
