About ARC

ARC was established in 2013.  Its aim is to bring together the research work within the University which spans the accounting profession, governance, accountability and the role of accounting within society.

The Centre explores these areas of interest from a variety of perspectives, including Arab and Islamic contexts, historical analysis, gender issues, public sector contexts and interdisciplinary approaches.

Our work covers a diverse range of research linked by the common thread of the continuing and significantly growing influential role that accounting plays in the functioning of modern society.
