IJCSM 2021 Special Issue Focusing on White-Collar Crime

“There is not a crime, there is not a dodge, there is not a trick, there is not a swindle, there is not a vice which does not live by secrecy.” – Joseph Pulitzer

A little over eighty years ago, during his 1939 address to the American Sociological Association, Edwin H. Sutherland coined the term “white-collar criminal.” Ten years later, in 1949, he published the seminal White Collar Crime. The original version of his book, which included case studies and called out corporate offenders, was censored until 1983. Over the last seventy years, corporations have taken on the role of legal entities – they’ve become “people” who can commit economic crimes. Swindles perpetrated by colluding firms now compete with accounting fraud and asset misappropriation. Read More

Dear EAA members,

These are terrible days for all, and I would first like to express my best wishes of health to all of you.

In light of the exceptional circumstances, which no doubt have led to significant delays in research plans, and in response to a number of requests to extend the deadline for submissions to the 2020 European Accounting Review Annual Conference, the deadline has been extended to April 25, 2020.

Given the set date of the conference, it is unfortunate we cannot extend the deadline further.
