    Dear AAFA Members & Supporters

    Firstly, I hope you are all doing well and you are looking after yourselves given these very difficult circumstances. 

    Secondly, and after discussions within the Executive Committee, we have decided, with much sadness, to postpone the AAFA 2020 conference and emerging scholars’ colloquium. Indeed, the coronavirus situation remains very uncertain at this stage across Africa and internationally. AAFA and the University of Cairo plan to re-schedule the conference to the beginning of September 2021 (dates to be confirmed). The call for papers is therefore cancelled and a revised one will be re-advertised in due course. 

    Thirdly, we are exploring alternative ways to support colleagues and doctoral students for the rest of 2020 and we will be in touch once we have some firm plans. In the meantime, I would like to remind you that our journal, African Accounting and Finance Journal (AAFJ) is open for article submissions (including in French). Further details at http://www.aafassociation.com/AAFJ

    On behalf of the Executive Committee, I thank you in advance for your understanding and support.

    Best regards

    Professor Teerooven Soobaroyen

    AAFA President

    Chers membres et supporters de l'AAFA

    Tout d'abord, j'espère que vous allez tous bien et que vous prenez soin de vous dans ces circonstances très difficiles. 

    Deuxièmement, et après discussions au sein du Comité exécutif, nous avons décidé, avec beaucoup de tristesse, de reporter la conférence AAFA 2020 et le colloque des universitaires émergents. En effet, la situation par rapport au coronavirus reste très incertaine à ce stade, tant en Afrique qu'au niveau international. L'AAFA et l'Université du Caire prévoient de reprogrammer la conférence au début du mois de septembre 2021 (dates à confirmer). L'appel à communications actuel est donc annulé et un appel révisé sera annoncé à nouveau en temps utile. 

    Troisièmement, nous explorons d'autres moyens de soutenir nos collègues et les doctorants pour le reste de l'année 2020 et nous vous contacterons dès que nous aurons des projets concrets. 

    En attendant, je voudrais vous rappeler que notre revue, la Revue Africaine de Comptabilité et de Finance (African Accounting and Finance Journal, AAFJ), est ouverte aux soumissions d'articles (y compris en version française). Pour plus de détails, consultez le site http://www.aafassociation.com/AAFJ . La version Francaise des modalités de publication se trouve au bas de la page web. 

    Au nom du comité exécutif, je vous remercie d'avance pour votre compréhension et votre soutien.

    Bien cordialement 

    Professeur Teerooven Soobaroyen

    Président de l'AAFA

    AAFJ Vol.2 Journal 2019 - Editor’s Desk

    Dear Readers; welcome to the 2nd special issue of the African Accounting and Finance Journal!

    The six papers in this special edition are among the top five papers that won the award of the call for research initiatives in Africa. The paper selection process was consistent with the Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) signed between African Accounting and Finance Association (AAFA) and Pan African Federation of Accountants (PAFA). Out of the five papers, the authors of the top three papers were sponsored to present their papers at the African Congress of Accountants (ACOA) in Moroco May 2019. Contemporaneously, the papers’ authors were mentored in the production of papers to the current published standard by Professors: Venancio Tauringana, Teerooven Soobaroyen and Stephen K. Nkundabanyanga. The process was sponsored by World Bank Group.

    The papers in this issue address pertinent issues of portfolio managers’ inertia towards published information, sustainable development goals, IFRS/IPSAS adoption and disclosure/reporting quality. Looking ahead, research on accounting and finance in Africa is still in its infancy. What is known is patchy. Thus, in general, the African terrain, offers scholars a minefield of untapped research opportunities with regard to the nature and character of accounting and finance in Africa.

    African Accounting and Finance Journal (AAFJ) is, of course, the official Journal of the African Accounting and Finance Association. Producing it is one of the main activities that the Association undertakes. All papers in this special issue, as in all other issues to come, (will) have in common that they investigate an aspect of accounting and finance – and one feature of accounting and finance is that it is a very wide and a very interdisciplinary field spanning (perhaps significantly) to economics and sustainable development. With that I leave you to read the papers, hoping that they will inspire you to read and act and to contribute to future editions.

    Prof. Stephen K. Nkundabanyanga (Ph.D.)

    This project builds on the 2017 Africa Call for Research Papers Initiative (ACRPI). This second ACRPI project is borne out of the desire of PAFA and AAFA to sustain the initiative they started in 2017. In furtherance to PAFA’s strategic goal to develop [and engage in] global knowledge and solutions on issues that will affect the economy, society and the profession (thought Leadership), this 2019 Initiative is envisioned to deepen the success recorded from the initial 2017 project. PAFA intends to extend its partnership with accountancy academics in African Universities in conducting research on emerging issues. This second collaboration between PAFA and AAFA therefore is to implement the “2019 Africa call for research papers initiative”.Download here...
