Event description

Description

The need for stronger protection for whistleblowers is regularly discussed but far less attention is given to addressing the dangers of whistleblowing before the decision to raise concerns has even been made. How can we help those that want to speak up about corruption or abuse to do it in ways that minimise these dangers before it’s too late? And ways that maximise the chances of getting a good outcome for both journalist and source?

In this session, Investigative Practice moves beyond general calls for whistleblower protection after the fact and aims to identify more effective and safer methods for divulging information in the public interest.

Chair:

Gill Phillips, Director of Editorial Legal Services, The Guardian.

Panellists:

Phil Chamberlain, Journalist, academic and author of Blacklisted

Bill Goodwin, Journalist, Computer Weekly

Julie Posetti, Senior Research Fellow, Reuters Institute for the Study of Journalism, Oxford
