The EIASM Public Sector conference welcomes contributions on all aspects of everyday life in public sector organizations. This forum is a conference for scholarly debate on the challenges facing public services in the 21st century. This includes the manner in which public service organizations respond to a recessionary environment. It also includes the impact of changes in technology on public services and the sustainability agenda. Structural changes in service delivery, with more network organizations, are also of interest. The interplay of public, private and nonprofit organizations in public service challenges is also of interest. The manner in which accounting informs or fails to inform public policy is also relevant to this conference. This conference is also interested in specific changes in public sector accounting such as the adoption of IPSAS. There will also be a special track on Audit with a special issue of Financial Accountability & Management planned for this track – see more details below.
This conference welcomes interdisciplinary perspectives on public sector issues. Accounting, Accountability and Governance in public services as captured through the lens of public management, public administration, public policy, and social theory are all of interest for this event.
This Call includes an interest in papers on the manner in which public services are managed and the role of accounting, performance and accountability information in management control. Research papers on the intersection of accounting practice, management styles and public policy are also welcomed. Studies of the nature of, and innovations in, accounting and auditing practices in action across the entire spectrum of public service organizations – central and regional government, local government, health care organizations, non governmental public sector bodies and agencies – are of particular interest for this conference.
