The African Context of Public Auditors

  • Maria Gustavson
Part of the The Executive Politics and Governance series book series


The first case in the study consists of the arenas for public auditors in Sub-Saharan Africa, that is, the African regional groups, AFROSAI and AFROSAI-E, within the standard-making organization for state audit institutions (INTOSAI), where the empirical study is limited to a number of activities taking place within these groups. The fieldwork conducted consisted of observations, personal interviews, document studies, as well as a number of informal conversations (see the Appendix for all data collected). The idea of starting the study with an open approach using multiple sources was to create a broad understanding of the context in order to avoid a too-narrow approach and, instead, with the theoretical approaches as guidance, enable a more open approach for variety within the empirical setting.
