Public Sector Accounting - Online PhD Spring School
Jurisdictions around the world have been reforming their PFM systems while the implementation of accrual accounting standards such as the International Public Sector Accounting Standards (IPSAs) remains at the heart of many reform endeavours. However, there is also evidence that public sector accounting reforms are stuck, fail or do not have full political support. Many aspects of such reforms need closer attention form academia and practice, in order to increase implementation success and to harness financial innovations to tackle challenges of the 21st century.
This free virtual PhD school aims to focus on public sector accounting reforms from various angles and perspectives. PhD scholars from all over the world are invited to submit qualitative or quantitative research (ideas) covering questions such as:
- What are the drives for public sector accounting reforms?
- What are the costs and benefits of public sector accounting reforms?
- How do public sector accounting reforms contribute to increased transparency or accountability?
- How can public sector accounting innovations be harnessed for better-informed decision-making?
- How is public sector accounting linked to service-delivery?
- What is the role of public sector accounting in the context of global challenges in the 21st century?
- How may public sector accounting reforms be harnessed to assess and measure public values?
- What are the achievements and challenges of standard-setting in public sector?
We have invited leading scholars in this field as well as the chair of IPSASB, who will provide insights into the most relevant theories and approaches. PhD students are invited to present their scientific papers or research ideas and to discuss them with their peers and internationally recognized experts.
