ABSTRACT
Objective

In addition to presenting a summary of global economic research and empirical evidence on tobacco taxation in low- and middle-income countries, this session will showcase the think-tank capacity building project by the University of Illinois at Chicago. Finally, this session will showcase the economic research conducted by UIC’s partner network of seven SEE countries.
