The global health and economic crisis brought about by the COVID-19 pandemic has highlighted—in many ways—that the world needs whistleblowers. Around the world, governments, international organisations, companies and NGOs are embarking on massive emergency financing to mitigate the impact of COVID-19 and prepare for post-crisis recovery. Given the urgency, essential transparency and accountability measures are being shortcut or postponed. Whistleblowers are one of the only ways that misconduct will be able to be detected early and addressed. The most advanced modern whistleblower protection laws allow whistleblowers to report directly to the public or media in cases of danger to public health or safety.
This exclusive OECD webinar will look at what urgent action governments and companies can take to ensure that people report misconduct related to COVID-19 mitigation and response measures, with the tools that they currently have.
The Webinar will be on the 22nd of May, at 13:00 GMT. For more details and to register see here
