Comparative International Governmental Accounting Research Network

Overall Strategy

A+ A A-

The CIGAR Executive Board has completed a document that describes the CIGAR Network Overall Strategy. Clear strategic goals are a prerequisite of sound governance. This comprehensive document expands on the basic strategic pillars of the CIGAR Network that aims:

a) To promote, within doctoral programmes, summer schools and similar activities, the fundamental aspects of the public sector accounting discipline;
b) To support PhD students and emerging scholars through a PhD Colloquium, and other specific events;
c) To incentivise joint supervisions of PhD students;
d) To encourage scholars to collaborate on joint international and comparative studies and projects;
e) To give an adequate visibility, during CIGAR Conferences and Workshops, to truly comparative international high-quality research and academic papers;
f) To provide suitable publication outlets (such as books or journal special or regular issues) for the academic work presented at the CIGAR events and/or by CIGAR Network Members;
g) To have a permanent dialogue with practitioners and standard setters, as well as a significant number of individuals in charge of accounting in public institutions or working in the accounting and auditing professions;
h) To collaborate with other academic research groups, networks and professional bodies internationally;
i) To provide to the general public evidence of the relevance of public sector accounting as a field of study for a better public financial management; and
j) To maintain the necessary financial health for its smooth operation.

The active support of all CIGAR Network members is the key to the achievement of these strategic goals.
