Abstract [en]

The traditional role of the auditor is to function as a sort of assurance for the owners and stakeholders of a company who need to be assured that the information presented about the company is true and fair.

In her dissertation, Pernilla Broberg argues that today such traditional view of the auditor function could be questioned. The study focuses on auditor practice and aims at answering the question of what auditors do. By observing auditors at work, identifying auditor activities and interviewing auditors about the findings, the study bring forth an updated view of auditing and the role of auditors.
