Curriculum

Education

Curriculum vitae
Robert Danon is a Full Professor of Law at the University of Lausanne (Switzerland) where he heads its Tax Policy Center. He also co-leads the research platform of the University of Lausanne dedicated to the role of investment and commercial arbitration in tax disputes.

Robert Danon serves as the Chairman of the Permanent Scientific Committee (PSC) of the International Fiscal Association (IFA), the global tax association with around 13,000 members from 116 countries.

At the national level, Professor Danon's expertise covers all areas of tax law. From an international standpoint, his academic research focuses first of all on tax treaty law, abuse of rights, dispute resolution, comparative taxation, transfer pricing as well as public international law in general. Secondly, his research concentrates on the interaction between investment law and tax disputes, in particular from a procedural and substantive perspective (i.e. in light of the substantive rights provided by IIAs).

Professor Danon is regularly called to give evidence as a testifying expert or to act as a consultant in the framework of mutual agreement and arbitration proceedings, including those involving non-tax agreements such as Bilateral Investment Treaties (BITs) or the Energy Charter Treaty (ECT). He has recently served as an expert witness in international tax law in several high-profile arbitration cases under the UNCITRAL or ICSID arbitration rules. He is also on the list of possible arbitrators under the mandatory binding arbitration clauses provided by selected bilateral tax treaties.

He has also been involved in several tax reforms. For instance, in 2015, he was requested by Switzerland's finance minister to analyze the entire constitutionality of its corporate tax reform designed to comply with the OECD/G20 and EU standards. Moreover, he is regularly invited by the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development ("OECD") to express his views on matters of international tax law and policy.
