  • Sustainability reporting issues

  • Corporate accountability within globalisation context, governance and gender diversification

Research Summary:

My current research focuses broadly on teasing out accounting and accountability issues related to any form of social accounting (i.e. social and environmental accounting, sustainability accounting, integrated accounting) in any form of business (i.e. multinational corporation and social business) and country contexts (i.e. developed and emerging countries). Given that accounting is a socially constructed phenomenon and different forms of accounting and accountability exist; my research goes on to explore, evaluate, critically examine, provide future directions and thus contribute in the development of these new forms of accounting. In particular, I am very much focused in reporting aspects of accounting such as corporate social and environmental reporting (CSER), climate change reporting, and sustainability reporting, within the emerging economy country context. My more recent interests include CSR in social media and religiosity and CSR. Although my research inquiries mainly follow the qualitative research methodology tradition (i.e. interview analysis, qualitative case study), I am keen to use mix-method approaches (i.e. interview and content analysis) and method triangulation.
