Johanna’s current research project focuses on the culture of international tax experts and on the prodcution of international tax norms and standards.

She currently conducts field research at the OECD in Paris, at the UN in Geneva and at international tax conferences worldwide. By exploring the changing fiscal accountabilities of global tax payers Johanna is interested to provide a more tangible understanding of the consequences and effects of the growing disjuncture between the national territorial organization of national states and the increasing transnational organization of today’s economic activity.

Her research combines legal and political anthropology, socio-legal studies and classic /new fiscal sociology.
