ISAR’s annual sessions in Geneva are among the largest expert meetings hosted by UNCTAD. Past sessions have consistently attracted hundreds of participants from a large proportion of member States. The participants come from a range of key stakeholder groups, including:

  • Policy-makers and regulators
  • Professional accountancy organizations
  • Private sector practitioners in accounting and investment
  • Academia and civil society organizations

Each session of ISAR produces a set of agreed conclusions, which guides its ongoing work. Each session’s final report includes these agreed conclusions and provides an overview of deliberations.

Below is an overview of the topics discussed at the annual sessions of ISAR, along with a link to all of the documents related to that ISAR session, including background papers, agreed conclusions, and the session report.
