RasmusCChistensen_9040vI am a PhD Fellow at the Department of Business and Politics at Copenhagen Business School (CBS). I hold a Master of Science degree in International Business and Politics from CBS. Before I joined CBS as a PhD Fellow, I have worked for KPMG and the Ministry of Finance in Denmark.

My research looks at processes of international tax governance in order to identify key actors and dynamics of change and stability. My aim is to foster a better understanding of how and why global economic and fiscal governance emerges and transforms. Using this knowledge, I also hope to inform and strengthen national and international tax policy.

Specifically, my PhD project investigates the competition and cooperation among different actors, including professionals, in changing tax rules and norms at the European and international levels. My empirical cases focus on the BEPS project, corporate tax transparency, and the evolution of the global transfer pricing regime. The project is part of the EU-funded Horizon 2020 Framework Program COFFERS, a collaboration of 10 universities and civil society organisations across Europe. My analytical approach is rooted in the traditions of International Political Economy and Economic Sociology, with broad tool kit, including methods such as social network analysis and sequence analysis.
