Event details

In this evening seminar, Professor Collins Ntim will re-enforce the centrality of accounting. Not just in facilitating day-to-day transactions, but also its ability to drive development, especially economic development. He will seek to draw attention to the destructive power and/or potential of accounting, with accounting often strongly implicated in facilitating negative practices, such as corruption, tax avoidance, global economic and financial crises, money laundering, drug and human trafficking, terrorism and other exploitative labour practices. Special emphasis will be placed on the role of, and need for, responsible accounting in the 21st century.
