CSEAR Ireland 2nd Congress on Social and Environmental Accounting Research

Kemmy Business School, University of Limerick, Ireland

October 31 – November 2, 2018


The Accountability Research Cluster (ARC) in Kemmy Business School is pleased to welcome the second CSEAR Ireland conference to at University of Limerick. Once again, CSEAR Ireland aims to bring together scholars and practitioners interested in issues related to Social and Environmental Accounting Research, and more broadly, draws on perspectives from other disciplines to highlight possibilities for, and enlightening conceptions of, accounting and social change. The spirit of the conference is collegiate and inter-disciplinary, and we aim to provide a forum for discussion, collaboration and intellectual exchange for all those interested in any of these fields of research or practice. The conference is hosted by ARC in the Kemmy Business School, University of Limerick, Ireland.

The conference is associated with a Special Issue of Accounting Finance and Governance Review addressing the theme of Interdisciplinary Perspectives of Accounting and Social Change, and work in progress intended for this special issue and relating to this theme will be especially welcomed. Where possible, these papers will be accommodated in a designated track. We welcome abstracts of 300 to 800 words on this or on the broader themes of social and environmental accounting research.

The conference committee encourages contributions on a wide range of topics through the use of a variety of approaches, including theoretical and empirical papers employing qualitative, quantitative and critical methods, action-based research and case studies.

Further details will be updated at Queries can be sent to or to the conference chairs, Sheila Killian or Philip O’Regan at UL

Delegates at the CSEAR Ireland conference should be members of CSEAR at the time of registration.
