CSEAR’s primary object is to aid the development of social and environmental accounting, and to support and encourage others who wish to practice, teach or research in this area of work – especially less experienced and/or isolated colleagues. The Centre’s main function is to also act as international network and focus for social and environmental accounting research. Currently we have members in 40 countries. Collaborative research is undertaken, supported and encouraged. The journal <i>Social and Environmental Accountability Journal (SEAJ)</i> is published twice a year by Routledge. Annual conferences are held in the UK and Australia/New Zealand; with conferences also organised in Brazil, France, Spain, Italy, Portugal, China and the USA/Canada on a regular basis.
