Audit et développement moral cognitif
Abstract(VF)Cette recherche présente la théorie du développement moral cognitif et ses apports à la compréhension des différents niveaux de sensibilité éthique des auditeurs confrontés à des situations professionnelles délicates. Tout d'abord, l'origine de la théorie (les travaux précurseurs de Piaget), les concepts (les différents niveaux pré-conventionnel, conventionnel et post-conventionnel) et les limites seront développés. Ensuite, une analyse empirique sera menée dans le contexte français du commissariat aux comptes.(VA)This research paper presents the theory of cognitive moral development and analyses its contribution to the understanding of different levels of ethical sensitivity among auditors when confronted with difficult situations in the workplace. First, the origins (Piaget's pioneering work), the concepts (the different pre-conventional, conventional and post-conventional levels), and the limits of the theory are developed. Second, an empirical study will be realized in the French audit context.
