Corporate tax evasion is causing poverty and undermining democracy worldwide. Climate change is an existential threat. These are the main problems from a human rights perspective because they threaten the greatest numbers of Iives both in Europe and globally. The problem can be addressed by giving political power to relevant experts as can be found in universities and NGOs such as Tax Justice Network, Attac, Greenpeace, Union of Concerned Scientists (USA) and so on. EU watchdogs should inform the public about the relevant expertise of candidates for political positions before elections, guided by current research and universal principles of human rights.
