U4 Anti-Corruption Resource Centre
is hosting a webinar on Strategic Litigation Against Public Participation suits (SLAPPs) and the impact on anti-corruption defenders.
SLAPPs are powerful legal tools that aim at suppressing those that speak out to defend the public interest, protect the environment and human rights, or combat corruption and tax evasion.
Thursday 30 September 2021, 13:00 - 14:00 (GMT)
