32nd CSEAR International Congress, St Andrews, 23-25 August 2022

HOST: University of St Andrews Location: St Andrews, United Kingdom

This residential conference at The University of St. Andrews is a gathering of academics, practitioners and researchers who focus on the teaching, research, theory and practice of social, environmental and sustainability accounting and reporting. The spirit of the conference is interdisciplinary and so submissions are also invited from perspectives beyond accounting. Please note the conference venue and the submission date.

The CSEAR conference provides a forum for scholarly work in various stages of development and explicitly encourages open discussion as well as close collegiality.

Plenary Speaker
We are delighted to announce that the confirmed plenary conference speaker is Professor Laura Spence from Royal Holloway, University of London.
