Author: Alexis Ferrand

This rapid literature review aims to gather evidence relating to whether investors and companies have actively sought to maintain operations in a country (primarily for profit and livelihood of employee reasons) while avoid paying taxation for ethical or political reasons in the event of a coup or similar regime which lacks credibility with a proportion of the international community. It then explores the literature around the various responses that have occurred following or related to political regimes with significant domestic and international opposition.
