Accountability is recognised to be a core element of any system for fostering and nurturing integrity in both the public and private sectors and it is central to democratic governance.
This presentation will examine the place of accounting, accountability and responsibility within effective National Integrity Systems. It will explore how they may interact as pillars that support integrity, rule of law, sustainable development and quality of life. Accountability will be considered as both a quest and a process that underpins the institution of integrity in order to promote ethics and in the pursuit of the public interest. The notion of accounting as a professional pursuit will be argued to focus on the dynamic interaction of accountability and responsibility in practice.
