Fiscal federalism in Europe and Latin America

The conference will attempt to describe how the system of fiscal federalism functions in times of crisis, comparing the european experience with that of Latin America. In particular, it will focus on the diverse tools used to achieve equilibrium in an unstable system, simultaneously guaranteeing that the exercise of fundamental rights be equitable in the entire affected territory. To that end, it will analize the financial coordination systems and distributive principles of public budgets at all levels of government, exposing the most severe problems facing the taxing and spending authorities.
