You have to research for an event (NOT BP-Gulf of Mexico or Exxon Valdez) where a company created a situation where their legitimacy was compromised. Considering the aspects of PAT, System-oriented theories and/or Social & Environmental, discuss the case. This must be in a report format, introducing the case, discussing the issues, how did they manage the situation, the conclusion (outcomes) as well as your recommendations and views. Note: the case should be within the past few years so that information is easily sourced.
Sources that you will find useful include;
• AASB (website of Australian Accounting Standards Board)
• FASB (website of US-based Financial Accounting Standards Board
• ICAA (Institute of Chartered Accountants in Australia)
It is also suggested that you use Proquest and Google Scholar as well as Financial review, the Age and BRW (Business Review Weekly)
Report structure: must consist of summary, introduction, points of discussion and conclusion. Where you feel a number of theories are applicable and that is quite likely, make sure they are clearly identified.
