Online PhD Spring School 2021

Organized by the ZHAW School of Management and Law

10 - 12 May 2021

20 years IPSAS implementation: What have we learned?

Jurisdictions around the world have been reforming their PFM systems while the implementation of IPSAS remains at the heart of many reform endeavors. But what are the costs and benefits of IPSAS reforms? And do such reforms lead to increased transparency, accountability or better-informed decision-making to effectively address current problems? Furthermore, 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 and research ideas.
