CIGAR is a network on comparative international governmental accounting research. CIGAR's mission is to promote worldwide discussion and research on comparative governmental accounting. The main means to realize this mission are the organisation of biennial conferences, biennial workshops dedicated to more specific research themes, and a regularly appearing Newsletter. The CIGAR Network stimulates the production of individual and joint papers, preferably in an international comparative perspective, and the publication of books and journal special issues comprising selections of papers presented at our conferences and workshops.

"Whole of Government Accounting and Auditing: International Trends"
