This paper considers a number of emerging issues in international tax law as a window on the future of international taxation. The discussion begins within tax treaties, looking at how they are coping with two
increasingly important issues in international taxation - high value services and international tax administration. Then the discussion looks at tax treaties and international taxation from without - noting the growing influence of international trade and other instruments on taxation and the international institutions that are quietly shaping the international tax order in a way that moves tax sovereignty from the national to the international level.
