Students work closely with their PhD supervisor and committee while conducting their PhD research and in writing the dissertation. The final product typically consists of three article-length chapters, an introduction and a conclusion.
The dissertation is the capstone piece of the PhD education. It represents an independent and original piece of scholarship and demonstrates the doctoral candidate’s mastery of both content material and the research process. Doctoral candidates complete their dissertation after finishing coursework, passing their comprehensive exams and receiving approval for their thesis proposal from their dissertation committee.
A candidate must present a dissertation demonstrating original and independent investigation and achievement. A dissertation should reflect not only a mastery of research techniques, but also ability to select an important problem for investigation, and to deal with it competently.
For information about submitting a dissertation, please see Thesis/Dissertation.

Taxation and development
I completed a PhD research on taxation and development, analysing effects of Dutch tax policy on taxation of multinationals in developing countries. Several aspects of Dutch corporate tax policy have unintended and negative effects on developing countries. In my research, I analyse the nature and size of these effects on different developing countries.
