Announcing CAAA 2014 Annual Conference eJournal
In cooperation with the Canadian Academic Accounting Association (CAAA), the Accounting Research Network (ARN) is pleased to announce the 2014 Canadian Academic Accounting Association (CAAA) Annual Conference eJournal. The eJournal is available to all users at no charge and contains abstracts of the conference papers with links to the full text within the SSRN eLibrary.
The Canadian Academic Accounting Association (CAAA) is an organization of accounting educators, professional accountants, and others who are involved in, or concerned about, research and education in accounting and related areas.
With the advent of International Financial Reporting Standards, accounting is more than ever a global field where professionals, scholars and practitioners evolve and work across borders. Accounting research has greatly benefited from the opening of institutional and other borders as it has provided for greater opportunities to expand research domains and to enhance the diversity of accounting academe. By its content and orientation, this year’s conference intends to reflect such trends.
Moreover, in the spirit of accounting research being increasingly international, the CAAA opens up its own frontier by holding its annual conference jointly with the Association francophone de comptabilia (French Accounting Association), France’s leading accounting academic association; thus, allowing for further international networking and, yes, connections

On October 11, 2013, a diverse group of civil rights scholars met at the University of Michigan Law School in Ann Arbor to assess the interpretation, development, and administration of civil rights law in the five decades since President Lyndon Baines Johnson signed the Civil Rights Act of 1964. Conference participants examined a host of emerging civil rights issues using doctrinal, jurisprudential, historical, sociological, policy-analytic, and other perspectives. Topics discussed included the theoretical foundations of civil rights laws; the social-movement contestation that led to the Civil Rights Act; the interaction between the Civil Rights Act and the social-welfare programs of the Great Society; the role, function, and constitutionality of affirmative action; the meaning of discriminatory intent; the application of civil rights principles to sexual orientation discrimination; the current judicial response to civil rights cases; the role of administrative agencies in enforcing civil rights; other countries’ approaches to antidiscrimination laws; and the future direction of civil rights law and policy. This eJournal provides a data warehouse for all abstracts and papers presented at the conference. Abstracts of the papers will also be distributed in subject-specific eJournals within the LSN.
