The Centre for Social and Environmental Accounting Research (CSEAR) has held an annual conference in the UK (often referred to as the Summer School) for more than two decades, as well as in other parts of the world for several years in Europe, Australia, New Zealand, and in both North and South Americas.

Similar to other CSEAR conferences, the 4th CSEAR France Conference will be a deliberately informal discussion forum gathering researchers, teachers, students and practitioners at all levels of experience to further enhance research in new instruments, policies and strategies related to social and environmental accounting in the very widest sense. The spirit of the conference is interdisciplinary and focuses on a high level of interaction, discussion and debate in a friendly and supportive atmosphere. As such, research papers from perspectives beyond accounting and management control such as organizational theory, marketing, finance, strategy, etc., are welcome.

The conference will provide participants an opportunity to present their research projects, ranging from discussing preliminary findings to full papers. Submissions are welcome in either French or English.

For this 4th CSEAR France conference, we are pleased to welcome Professor Carlos Larrinaga, Professor of Accounting at the University of Burgos, as our plenary speaker. For the practitioner forum, we are equally pleased to welcome Patricia Chauvel-Aublet, co-founder of Alter-Eco and Pur Projet who will talk about compensation (carbon and biodiversity) and its evolution across the years. There will also be a Special Issue of Sustainability Accounting, Management and Policy Journal on “Sustainability Accounting, Management and Policy in France” (a call for papers has been issued and is available on the conference website). Under the aegis of the AFC (French Accounting Association), the conference will be organized by Toulouse Business School.

Please check the conference website for more details. The website will be regularly updated with important information such as accommodation and registration matters.
