Stewart Lawrence has an honours degree in Economics (UCL), a Masters in Management and Business Studies (Warwick) and a Doctorate in Accounting (Waikato). He is a member of the Chartered Institute of Management Accountants (UK) and is a Chartered Accountant (NZICA). He worked as a corporate accountant for British Rail and a small forestry company in New Zealand. He teaches in the area of management accounting. Stewart's research interests include performance measurement and evaluation practices especially in public sector organisations concentrating on the socially constructed nature of accounting measures. His doctoral work examined the way in which accountants contribute to the socially constructed nature of organisations, and this interest has been expanded to the constitutive employment of accounting technology in society more generally, especially as it relates to sustainability.
