"The changing internal market for ethical discourses in the Canadian CA profession''
which appeared in Accounting, Auditing & Accountability Journal, Vol. 16 No. 1, 2003
Dean Neu is the Future Fund Professor of Accounting and Co-Director of the Centre for Public Interest Accounting in the Haskayne School of Business at the University of Calgary, Canada. He has published more than 50 research articles in the leading academic and practitioner journals in the field. As an accounting scholar and activist, he is committed to unveiling the presence of accounting where we might not otherwise expect to find it and has in numerous articles and public appearances revealed how accounting plays a mediative role between governments and population segments. His research and writing demonstrate how accounting, working hand in hand with bureaucracies, shapes and constructs societal governance. In this work, the disguise of accounting as a boring benign appendage to business and government is stripped away to reveal how accounting numbers play a crucial role in shaping public policy and the perceptions the public has of those policies.
