RasmusCChistensen_9040vI am a PhD Fellow at the Department of Organization at Copenhagen Business School (CBS). I hold a Master of Science degree in International Business and Politics from CBS. Before joining CBS as a PhD Fellow, I 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 strengthen our understanding of how and why global economic and fiscal governance emerges and transforms.

My ultimate ambition is to contribute to building a better, more sustainable international tax system, informing national and international tax governance using the knowledge from my research.

Specifically, my PhD project investigates the competition and cooperation among different actors, including professionals, in changing international tax rules and norms. 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, using a broad tool kit. I combine a variety of qualitative methods and quantitative methods, including ethnography, social network analysis, sequence analysis, content analysis, and correspondence analysis.
