CALL FOR PAPERS: The 2024 African Congress on Socal and Environmental Accounting Research

Deadline: 31 May 2024

The Department of Accounting at the College of Business and Social Sciences (CBSS), Covenant University, Nigeria, is pleased to host the 1st CSEAR Africa Conference on November 11-13, 2024 at the College of Business and Social Sciences, Covenant University.

The 1st CSEAR Africa Conference will be preceded by an Emerging Scholars Colloquium. The Colloquium aims at introducing emerging scholars into the social and environmental accounting research community and providing them an opportunity to present and discuss their research projects alongside a cohort of distinguished international faculty. We strongly recommend for PhD students (and early career researchers) to submit their papers to the Colloquium.

The Centre for Social and Environmental Accounting Research (CSEAR) has held annual congresses in the UK (formerly referred to as the Summer School) for about three decades now, and in other regions of the world such as Europe, Australia, New Zealand, Asia, and South and North America.

Similar to other CSEAR conferences, the 1st CSEAR Africa Conference will be a deliberately informal gathering and discussion forum for researchers, teachers, students and practitioners concerned with social and environmental accounting and accountability, teaching and research in the very widest sense. Its emphasis is on a high level of interaction, discussion and debate in a friendly, supportive and relaxed atmosphere.

Attendees will include academics, practitioners and PhD students at all levels of experience, and involved with all aspects of social, environmental, sustainability theory and practice in accounting and other disciplines. As such, interdisciplinary submissions applying any theoretical lenses are encouraged, and both full and research-in-progress papers are welcome. Abstract-only submissions are also welcome.

The conference will feature a workshop on how to publish in highly competitive international journals and a practitioner forum focusing on SDGs and sustainability agenda for Africa. The main objective of this conference is to provide a forum for discussions to enhance research in policies and strategies relating to sustainable development.
