The purpose of this paper is to reflect on how the social-theoretical work of Pierre Bourdieu (1931-2001) could contribute to knowledge production on accountability. The paper draws on Bourdieu's conceptualisation of social practice in terms of a field/habitus relation, and uses this relation as a framing mechanism to explore the possibilities of accountability in corporate-stakeholder relations.
