Whistleblowers provide the voice to expose corruption, but whistleblower laws give them the vital legal protection from retribution and help to ensure that their disclosures make the greatest positive impact. The UNCAC binds all of its signatory countries to consider legal provisions to protect people who report corruption-related offences from retaliation. The implementation of Article 33 into domestic legal systems is crucial to protect whistleblowers and make their contributions matter.

Panelists will dicuss UNAC's provisions to protect whistleblowers in Sub-Saharan Africa and discuss the experiences of whistleblowers in terms of retaliation, unjustified treatment for persons who reported in good faith and reasonable grounds.
