Lotta Björklund Larsen is a Research Fellow at TARC (Tax Administration Research Centre), University of Exeter and an independent researcher. Broadly based in economic, legal and moral anthropology, her research interest circles around taxation. Why we pay tax, why we avoid doing so and how we are made to pay tax are questions that bring to fore people’s relation to state, community and fellow citizens. Through her research on taxation she has looked into knowledge that shapes people’s lives, collaborative anthropologies and the digitization of society. Her recent books include A Fair Share of Tax: A Fiscal Anthropology of Contemporary Sweden (Palgrave 2018)  and Shaping Taxpayers. Values in action at the Swedish Tax Agency (Berghahn 2017).
