This allows some interrogation about the ways in which stakeholder engagement is constituted thus providing some directions about how it can become enabling rather than disabling of corporate accountability.This paper reflects on the consequences that accounting logics and practices may have for organizations and society and responds to calls for more detailed empirical studies on the extension of accounting and accountability-type technologies into stakeholder engagement and considers the possible implications for the development of a holistic accountability practice more generally.  ",
