Symposium on the Protection of Whistleblowers

Whistleblowers play a pivotal role in supporting transparency and accountability in both the public and private sectors as they bring to light illegal activities such as tax evasion and collusion.

This symposium aimed to further elaborate the key elements that should be included in a robust whistleblower protection system as some high-profile cases have also evidenced the shortcomings. This is to ensure that workers who disclose wrongdoing – especially those of the independent audit institutions, customs, tax revenue agencies, and judicial bodies – are protected from reprisal and are rewarded for doing what is fair and just.

This symposium was organized by PSI (Public Services International) prior to PSI’s 30th World Congress taking place 30 October – 3 November 2017 and supported by the FES Geneva Office.
