Specialisation Customs and International Supply Chain Taxation

Do you have a global mindset? And do you like trade, business, politics and tax law in an international context? If so, the ‘Customs and International Supply Chain Taxation’ specialisation of the International and European Tax Law master’s programme is perfect for you. What makes this programme unique is that it leaves from the perspective of the global supply chain, and the businesses and authorities that operate within it. The courses deal with a variety of taxes and levies, such as customs duties, VAT, anti-dumping duties and ecological levies (e.g. emission and carbon taxes). In that context, students will get acquainted with many issues which are at the forefront of today’s global developments, (e.g. the China – U.S. tariff wars, the Brexit, deforestation, smuggling and international VAT fraud). Further, they will obtain a thorough understanding of the legal regimes that govern international trade, such as international customs law and WTO policymaking. Since there is a great demand for legal experts in the field of supply chain taxation, job prospects for graduates are excellent. In other words: this is the perfect moment for you to enroll in the specialisation ‘Customs and International Supply Chain Taxation’.
