A critical review of the fairness and transparency of the due process of accounting standard setting

You are required to read:

Bamber, M and McMeeking, K (2016), ‘An examination of international accounting standard-setting due process and the implications for legitimacy’, The British Accounting Review, Volume 48, Issue 1, pages 59-73.

This article is available at: http://www.sciencedirect.com/science/journal/08908389/48/1

The word count for the essay is 3,000 (+/- 10%) words.  The indicative marking scheme in Appendix B will help you to structure your work.


Over the coming months you will find and critically evaluate at least nine additional academic journal articles which are related in some way to the CW article, in order to draw out a clear argument with a conclusion based upon the data considered. Further sources (for example, references to professional reports) may be added as desired.



Academic articles include an abstract. If there is no abstract, please be aware that you may be reading something that is not an academic article.



It is recommended that you use Google Scholar for finding relevant articles. Do not use Google because Google will find mostly non-academic links.



 search using Emerald and Science Direct, for example.
