The “1st workshop on preventing accounting scandals: Practices and practitioners” took place at IUM on the 14 and 15 March 2019.

The workshop aimed at exploring practices and practitioners behind accounting scandals under different perspectives in order to bring out new research questions on this area.

Twenty-three academics from nine different countries discussed fifteen papers and provided inspiring insights behind the complex world of financial accounting.

The participants have been highly engaged in a debate about the macro-economic, institutional setting, and firm-level scenario that may provide incentive to accounting misreporting. They have also emphasized the importance of the role of universities and academics in instilling in students strong ethical behaviours also through the development of a climate of fairness, professionalism and justice during their courses
