Abstract: This paper aims at investigating the potential transformative nature of accounting and possibility of emancipatory accounting in solving corporate social responsibility (CSR) problems from the theoretical perspective. Within the socio-political and economic context of China, the paper focuses on evaluating the roles of non-governmental organisations (NGOs) in promoting accounting mobilisation and development of CSR in China. It concludes that CSR in China has been captured by the state and corporations, leaving the NGOs as the only legitimate means to effect the transformative change in China, using alternative social reporting.
