This chapter discusses substantive issues for academia generally, and for researchers actively or contemplating conducting research on accounting in emerging economies. The authors have all researched and published in this area, sometimes individually but more often collaboratively, all but one have supervised PhD students, and all have promoted networks of researchers in this area. Except for one author born in the UK, the others were born, received their education up to and including university, and initially worked in their home countries (Bangladesh, Benin, Nigeria, Mauritius, Pakistan and Sri Lanka) before completing their PhDs in the UK or, in one instance, New Zealand. All retain links with their birthplaces, through their research and university and professional contacts. Whilst we do not claim expertise on accounting in all emerging economies, our careers have exposed us to much of this research, especially in Asia and Africa. This chapter draws on these experiences.
