«Future avenues for Public Sector Accounting: engaging research, practice and use»

Call for Papers and Deadlines

Along the last 30 years, the CIGAR Network has been one, if not the main, international forum for discussing and researching on the most relevant and updated topics related to public sector accounting in its broadest meaning. Examples of such can be found in the several publications coming from the Network’s events.
