Legal Barriers to Cross-Border Philanthropy in Europe Event

ERNOPI am off to Basel, Switzerland next week for an event focusing on Legal Barriers to Cross-Border Philanthropy in Europe.  (I know, the hard life of an academic.) I helped organize the event along with Oonagh Breen (University College Dublin) and Hanna Surmatz (European Foundation Centre (EFC)). The event will be held the afternoon before the biennial European Research Network on Philanthropy (ERNOP) conference at the University of Basel. It is particularly timely because of two significant European philanthropy developments earlier this year: the release by the European Economic and Social Committee of an opinion titled European Philanthropy: An Untapped Potential; and the publication by EFC and the Donors and Foundations Networks in Europe (DAFNE) of a European Philanthropy Manifesto. These two developments reportedly have created new momentum among policymakers to address the barriers to philanthropy in Europe, including philanthropy across borders.

Here is the current program for the event:

13:00-14:15: Session One: European Regulatory Measures
Oonagh B. Breen, UCD Sutherland School of Law (moderator)
Dominque Jakob, Universität Zürich
Wino Van Veen, Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam

14:30-15:45: Session Two: Taxation
Lloyd Hitoshi Mayer, University of Notre Dame (moderator)
Anne-Laure Paquot, Transnational Giving Europe
Giedre Lideikyte-Huber, Université de Genève
Hanna Surmatz, European Foundation Centre

16:00-17:15: Session Three: Emerging Issues
Hanna Surmatz, European Foundation Centre (moderator)
Francesca Fanucci, European Center for Not-for-Profit Law
Isabel Peñalosa-Esteban, Spanish Association of Foundations
