The Social Accounting and Accountability Research Centre (SAARC) and the School of Accounting and Finance are hosting the 11th Australasian Conference on Social and Environmental Accounting Research (A-CSEAR) Conference from 2-4th December 2012. The theme this year is “People & Place” and reflects the importance of recognising the impact of organisational practices on both human and environmental existence and thereby the significance of giving voice to both people & place in the context of social & environmental reporting. More details are on the A-CSEAR Conference Website.
Jeurgen Seufert and Yanwen Shao , two HDR students in the School of Accounting and Finance were sponsored by SAARC to attend the Emerging Scholar’s Colloquium preceding the annual Australasian Centre for Social and Environmental Accounting Research (A-CSEAR) hosted by the University of Tasmania in December 2011. The conference brings together Australian and international scholars researching all facets of social and environmental accounting from a range of paradigms and perspectives.
