Call for Papers: Shaping Organisational Change in Higher Education

Dear HumanDHS Friends

Social accountability and stakeholder engagement for sustainability: Shaping organisational change in higher education?

Special issue call for papers from Accounting, Auditing & Accountability Journal

Higher education institutions are increasingly called upon to play a leading role in moving all of us to a more sustainable future. They create economic, social and environmental impacts as they educate students, provide research, strengthen communities, operate their campuses and business, and influence behaviours that form today’s and future society. It is a somewhat curious omission that higher education institutions have lagged behind other private and public organisations in being accountable for their social impacts for a long time. However, in the last few years there has been considerable progress in the way higher education institutions approach issues of social responsibility in education, research and their organisation. There is also an increasing understanding of public disclosure needs in relation to sustainability. Much less is known, however, about the linkages between the processes of social accountability and the level of organisational change within higher education.
