Reflections on the 2nd International FAR Conference 2017

On 7 and 8 June the 2nd International FAR Conference took place which offered science and practice a platform to interact with each other on the topic ‘Controversies in Future Audit Quality – A multi-stakeholder perspective’. With a Minister of Finance issuing a challenge, a driven regulator, enthusiastic and renowned (inter)national scientists, a broad and engaged audience and a substantive debate on intriguing statements: the 2nd International FAR Conference brought the organisation and the participants what they had hoped for – and more. Please click on the photocollage and video for an impression of the conference.

The International FAR Conference was mentioned in a broad range of media. The Financial Newspaper [FD] has dedicated an article to FAR which outlines an interview with the managing directors, Olof Bik and Jan Bouwens, on the Auditing Profession finally opening their “black box”. For the full press release please click here (in Dutch only). wrote an article as well about the conference with the headline: The Public Interest is not always the first priority in an Audit (in Dutch only).

After the summer a special issue of the MAB [Maandblad voor Accountancy en Bedrijfseconomie] will be published with the conference proceedings (in English). For a short Dutch version of the FAR conference report please click here.
