German professional journals report on IRZ activities in South-East Europe
The 13/2018 edition of the journal for European and international tax and business consultancy (iStR - Internationales Steuerrecht) published by C.H. Beck includes a comprehensive four-page report on the conference on “Tax law in constitutional court jurisdiction”, organised in April by the IRZ and the Constitutional Court of Bosnia and Herzegovina, with the participation of other constitutional courts in the West Balkans.
This report presents the jurisdiction on tax matters of the participating constitutional courts, using numerous cases discussed at the conference. It is clear that constitutional courts in South-East Europe use the jurisdiction of the European Court of Human Rights in Strasbourg and of the German Federal Constitutional Court in Karlsruhe as a strong point of reference. The report focusses in particular on judicial reviews.
The fact that this journal, which is mainly read by German tax practitioners, gives so much space to the event shows that the IRZ’s activities not only deliver interesting results that can be put into practice in the relevant partner states, but that they are also useful for German practice and to enhance our knowledge of the countries concerned.

The same can be said for the review of the “Law in Transition” publication, which appeared in the latest edition of the Jahrbuch für Ostrecht. The volume details a conference organised by the IRZ and the Belgrade Faculty of Law and is also published by C.H. Beck.
In addition, the Südosteuropa-Mitteilungen published by the South-East Europe association recently published an article by Dr. Stefan Pürner on the Serbian journal “Hereticus. Časopis za preispitivanje prošlosti“ (“Hereticus – a magazine for re-examination of the past“).The IRZ works with the journal’s editorial staff in Serbia.
