BackgroundThe Centre for Accounting, Finance & Governance was established in March 2005 to promote and co-ordinate the research being undertaken by members of the Department of Accounting & Finance. This Department has some noteworthy research strengths in the areas of Accounting, Finance and Governance, and areas related to them. Members of the Department have made, and are making, significant contributions in terms of both teaching and research within these areas. For example, recently, at least six papers have been presented at academic research conferences (in France, Italy and England) by members of the Centre. Most of this research was conducted on a personal, individual and non-coordinated basis prior to the establishment of the Centre.
