CICTAR is an organisation driven by detailed forensic financial research, but we don’t engage in research just for the sake of it. Our interventions are always designed to support campaigns for change and we focus on developing the knowledge of organisers and activists from trade unions and civil society. CICTAR helps them gain a practical understanding of complex systems of tax avoidance and how to expose and challenge corporate misconduct. Taxation can be a tricky or even scary subject for some, so CICTAR focuses on building confidence around topics that are too important to be left to the ‘experts’. Ensuring that multinationals meet obligations to society is essential for supporting responsible businesses, strong communities and tackling the threat of growing inequality.
