The road to recovery: sustainability imperatives and the reshaping of public finance and accounting in the post-pandemic world

This workshop will bring together researchers from around the world to present, discuss and debate their research projects. The workshop is intended as a forum to encourage research collaboration across institutions and disciplines and for the dissemination of research outputs.  The workshop will take place online.

The global pandemic (COVID-19) has triggered one of the most severe economic recessions in nearly a century: it has materially reversed movement towards, and advancements achieved through, the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs); now more than ever the services of public and social organisations are needed by the most vulnerable in society.

The policy choices that governments make in their pandemic recovery plans will determine the level of movement towards developing a more inclusive, sustainable, and resilient future.  In the face of the problems outlined above, policy makers, accountants and business experts have a key role to play in the recovery from the crisis.
