Qualitative Methods Symposium on Auditing, Governance, and Professionalism in Context

Qualitivative Methods Symposium 2024 Eng 20230907

We are pleased to announce that a third edition of the Qualitative Methods Symposium on Auditing, Governance, and Professionalism in context will be held as part of the 2024 CAAA Conference in Halifax. The objective of the symposium is to promote the development of qualitative research and offer a positive space for scholars from all horizons and background to present their research. We acknowledge the support of the CPA Ontario Centre for Corporate Reporting and Professionalism at Queen’s University.

The symposium will proceed in-person.

When conducting research, qualitative scholars collect a wide variety and great volume of empirical materials. Making sense of these materials in a meaningful way which can enrich extant understandings of the issues at hand presents a significant and often challenging task.

The aim of the Symposium is to provide a platform where we can discuss experiences of conducting qualitative research in accounting/auditing and share some ideas relating to the development of qualitative research papers.


Upon submitting your paper to the 2024 CAAA Annual Conference Call for Papers, you will be asked if you would like your submission to be considered for the Qualitative Methods Symposium.
