    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...

    8th African Accounting and Finance Conference

    8ème Conférence Africaine de Comptabilité et Finance

    CESAG Business School (Centre Africain d’Etudes Supérieures en Gestion)

    Dakar, Senegal

    Final Call for Papers

    The African Accounting and Finance Association (AAFA) was established in 2011 and is the main

    Pan-African accounting and finance academic association which extends its reach beyond the

    Anglophone remit to embrace other African regions, such as the Francophone region; which is

    seen as one of its most distinctive features. Its annual Conference – The African Accounting and

    Finance Conference – brings together established scholars (from within the continent, the diaspora

    and beyond), early career researchers (including graduate students), policymakers, and

    practitioners to debate on contemporary issues in accounting and finance. The Conference will

    feature parallel sessions in English and French.

    The CESAG Business School (Centre Africain d’Etudes Superieures en Gestion) – a leading

    regional business school in West Africa – is very proud to be the first Francophone institution to

    host the 2018 edition of the African Accounting and Finance Conference.

    Research areas of interest to the Conference

    The conference welcomes submissions (full papers) in any area(s) of accounting and finance

    including, but not limited to:

    Editor’s Desk

    The five papers in this special edition are the top five papers that won the award of the call for research initiatives in Africa. The call for papers opened on the 1st of December 2016 through to the 31st of January, 2017. A total of 97 submissions were received by the African Accounting and Finance Association secretariat.

    An Implementation Review Committee (IRC) was set up made up of senior academics and professionals in Africa and Africans in diaspora to assess the 97submission of abstracts. The top ten abstracts were identified and full papers were later submitted and handled by the same IRC. The top five papers which was the target of the advert were selected out of the ten papers. 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 Uganda May 2-5, 2017.

    The paper selection process was in line with the agreement in the Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) signed between African Accounting and Finance Association (AAFA) and Pan African Federation of Accountants (PAFA).

    The process was sponsored by World Bank Group and the challenge now is to work on a similar research project for ACOA to be held May 2019 in Morocco. The research theme is: ‘Sustainability and Relevance of Accounting and Finance Research in Africa’. Watch out for details on our AAFA website: https://www.aafassociation.com
