SECOND CALL FOR PAPERS
 
The African Accounting and Finance Association (AAFA) was established in 2011 and is the main Pan-African accounting and finance academic association which extends its reach beyond the Anglophone remit to embrace other African regions, such as the Francophone region; which is seen as one of its most distinctive features. Its annual Conference – The African Accounting and Finance Conference – brings together established scholars (from within the continent, the diaspora and beyond), early career researchers (including graduate students), policymakers, and practitioners to debate on contemporary issues in accounting and finance. The Conference will feature parallel sessions in English and French.
 
University of Dar es Salaam Business School (UDBS) of the University of Dar es Salaam (UDSM) is one of the growing Schools in the East African Region, which came into existence in 2008 as a result of the transformation of the former Faculty of Commerce and Management (FCM) which was established in 1979. UDBS is very proud to host the 9th edition of the African Accounting and Finance Association (AAFA) Conference, in collaboration with the Institute of Finance Management (IFM).
