Amsterdam, 28 september 2018 – On 29 November 2018 Transparency International Nederland (TI-NL) will be organising a seminar addressing the topic of whistleblower protection, and in particular the reputation of blowing the whistle. The seminar and webinar Blowing the Whistle – Pride, Prejudice & Protection will take place from 14:00 tot 19:00 o’clock in Kinepolis Utrecht, the Netherlands.
The seminar & webinar – moderated by Teun Gautier (founder of PubLeaks) – will focus on questions such as: How can we see whistleblowers as positive forces in our society again? What contributes to the imaging of blowing the whistle? How can we influence this? This is in our view – in addition to strong legislation – the essence of promoting the protection of whistleblowers and the core of the event that TI-NL will organise: searching for the elements that can help to improve the reputation of blowing the whistle.
