Cecilia Fredriksson is a PhD student in Business Administration at the Department of Management and Organization (DMO), Stockholm School of Economics, and at Stockholm Center for Organizational Research (SCORE).
Cecilia is working within the project Who is watching the watchdog? The construction of independence in the audit society. The four-year research program (2017–2020) is funded by Handelsbankens Forskningsstiftelser and is led by Kristina Tamm Hallström. Other researchers in the research group are Nils Brunsson and Ingrid Gustafsson.
In her PhD thesis, Cecilia is studying independent auditing in a European perspective. The empirical focus lies on how accreditation organizations within European accreditation are organizing independent auditing in light of the new legal framework of 2008. Theoretically, it investigates how organizational memberships (or meta-organization as a form of organizing where organizations are members in another organization) and dependence on others impact the organization of independent auditing.
