Join Progressive Connexions for Whistleblowing: A Global Inclusive Interdisciplinary Conference on Sunday 14th March 2021 – Monday 15th March 2021 in Lisbon, Portugal.

It is an appropriate time to reconsider the meaning and implications of whistleblowing. What conditions give rise to and sustain whistleblowing? What purposes does whistleblowing serve in a democratic society? What lessons are to be gained from case studies in terms of the possibilities of achieving change by working within a system, working outside a system, working alone or as part of a collective that may or may not be organised? How can societies harness the benefits of whistleblowing as a form of extreme civic engagement while preserving the values of justice and fairness, and protecting the rights of relevant parties? What are the rules of engagement for blowing the whistle on and dealing with whistleblowers?

From the conversations and dialogues which take place, Progressive Connexions intention is to form a selective innovative interdisciplinary publication to engender further research and collaboration.

The aim of this inclusive interdisciplinary conference and collaborative networking event is to bring people together and encourage creative conversations in the context of a variety of formats: papers, seminars, workshops, storytelling, performances, poster presentations, problem-solving sessions, case studies, panels, q&a’s, round-tables etc. Creative responses to the subject, such as poetry/prose, short film screenings/original drama, installations and alternative presentation styles that engage the audience and foster debate are particularly encouraged.

300 word proposals, presentations, abstracts and other forms of contribution and participation should be submitted by Friday 4 September 2020. Other forms of participation should be discussed in advance with the Organising Chairs.
