  abstract  = {This paper explores the idea of globalisation and
considers accounting-s role in that process in order to develop new
spaces for accounting research. That-s why in this paper we are
looking for questions not necessary for answers. Adopting an
'alternative' view of accounting it-s related to the fact that we sees
accounting as social and evolutionist process, that pays heed to those
voices arguing for greater social and environmental justice, and that
draws attention to the role of accounting researchers in the process of
globalisation. The paper defines globalisation and expands the
globalisation and accounting research agenda introducing in this
context the harmonization process in accounting. There are the two
main systems which are disputing the first stage of being the
benchmark: GAAP and IFRS. Each of them has his pluses and
minuses on being the selected one. Due to this fact a convergence of
the two, joining the advantages and disadvantages of the two should
be the solution for an unique international accounting solution. Is this
idea realizable, what steps has been made until now, what should be
done in the future. The paper is emphasising the role of the cultural
differences in the process of imposing of an unique international
accounting system by the global organizations..},
