oa Botswana Institute of Administration & Commerce Journal - Critical accounting research: potentials for researchers in Botswana and other developing post-colonial environments

Volume 2, Issue 2
  • ISSN : 1729-1070



This paper explores, and highlights potential areas of accounting research in Botswana and other developing post colonial countries that could be exploited following insights from what is often referred to as 'critical accounting'. Critical accounting is an approach which benefits from insights of a school of thought that has come to be known as 'critical theory'. The paper also identifies the potential understanding that could be derived from such research as well as practical implications of such understanding. The paper concludes that the potential for critical accounting is especially high for post-colonial developing environments like Botswana. The paper thus calls for researchers to explore and exploit this potential.
