'In the aftermath of crisis: Reflections on the principles, values and significance of academic inquiry in accounting': Introduction


  • Christopher Humphrey


Through a select number of essays from leading accounting scholars, this special debating forum reflects on how the international academic accounting profession has responded in the aftermath of Enron and other recent corporate scandals. The presented combination of personal experiences and reflections of individuals working in North America, Australasia and Europe offers some intriguing insights of the nature of different educational arenas and the particular obligations that accounting educators must assume and respond to in the future. This introduction to the special debating forum explains its remit, summarises each individual contribution and analyses the main messages and implications to emerge from the forum.
