Rwanda Students Debate on Tax Justice

Strengthening Youth Participation in Policy Dialogue Processes

On 14 and 15 February 2018, TJNA in collaboration with Governance for Africa will be hosting the first national students debate on tax justice in Rwanda. The meet, which is supported by the William and Flora Hewlett Foundation and Save the Children, will take place in the capital city of Kigali and will bring together 16 students from eight universities from across the country.

The debate follows a series of successful student debates held across East and Southern Africa, with the first ever students debate on tax justice held in Kampala, Uganda in 2016. The main purpose of this event is to engage young people across Africa on socio-economic issues and specifically to give them an opportunity to deliberate various concepts around tax justice.

The top two teams from the debate will then represent the country at the next EAC students debate. For more information, please see the relevant documents in the links below.
