About this book

Since 1998, the world’s leading experts on accounting and regulation have convened in a series of workshops to explore and analyze emerging issues in the field.  They have covered a wide array of topics, including corporate governance, auditing, financial disclosure, international standards boards, and the dynamics of markets and institutions.  Most recently, they have focused on the role that accounting practices and policies may have played in the global financial crisis of 2008. In this volume, the editors showcase contributions from the workshops that represent the full spectrum of issues and perspectives relating to accounting and regulation.  Each paper incorporates the most current examples and references to reflect the latest insights, with an emphasis on exploring future implications for theory and research, practice, and policymaking.  ​

“Aims to provide some new, timely, and important insights on accounting regulation and to contribute to a better understanding of its links with other institutions that influence the real economy. … an excellent read for academicians, graduate students, policymakers, regulators, and even practitioners, and young researchers will find themselves not only compensated through a very good overview of some interesting, state-of-the-art research in the area of accounting and regulation, but quite possibly also inspired to explore new avenues of research.” (Leonidas C. Doukakis, The International Journal of Accounting, Vol. 50, 2015)
