We carry out research across the fields of accounting and finance, with a focus on developing economies.
We aim to foster collaboration and networking with researchers and teachers working in these areas to improve teaching and provide support to PhD students specialising in less developed and emerging economies. We work with professional accounting bodies in the UK and internationally.
Essex Business School helps to run the BAFA Accounting and Finance in Emerging Economies Special Interest Group.
We promote informed debate and aim to establish a more realistic understanding of accounting issues in less developed, emerging and transitional economies. We are interested in historical, theoretical, empirical and practical issues, whether quantitative or qualitative, affecting accounting and accountability in Asian, African and Latin American LDCs and transitional economies.
