About the project

This project concerns how accounting practices interlink with the everyday life of refugees, emphasizing the social significance of accounting. We address the question: What is the role of accounting in the everyday life of the refugee? Refugees are shadowed in rural and urban contexts. The method consists of observations, conversations, and artifacts, enabling us to listen in, trace artifacts in time and space, and hands-on identify accounting practices encountered by refugees.

This study can illuminate how individuals enact accounting practices and query their influence on everyday life. An accounting focus on migration can make visible social issues relevant to immigration policies.
