Event description

Description

We invite you to Galway to take part in a paper development workshop, symposium and networking forum on the topic of whistleblowing in organisations. The event is aimed at researchers currently working on issues including but not limited to theories of whistleblowing, ethics and politics of whistleblowing, transparency and speak-up systems.

The day will consist of a symposium on teaching ethics, whistleblowing and related topics in a university setting. After this, paper development roundtable sessions will be hosted by senior academics who will provide developmental feedback to attendees on works-in-progress, alongside feedback from peers.

To attend:

Register here and email your paper abstract (max. 300 words) to Muhammad Irfan (m.irfan2@nuigalway.ie) by 28th February 2019. Please be ready to send your fuller piece of work (max 7000 words) by 28th March 2019.

***NOTE: The aim is for participants to gain direct ideas and feedback which will benefit their ongoing work. Therefore the paper to be submitted need not be in an advanced state of development— participants simply provide a document that will offer your mentors the best opportunity to provide constructive feedback to you. As part of your submission please indicate if you have a specific “ask” from your mentors and peers (e.g. other ideas for a theoretical base, struggling with methods, finding things I was not expected to find, etc.) or if you would just like general feedback.
