Transparency International Netherlands is hosting a half-day seminar and webinar called “Blowing the Whistle – Pride, Prejudice & Protection.”
The seminar will focus on the reputation of whistleblowers and address questions like: How can outside legislation better protect whistleblowers? How can we see whistleblowers as positive forces in our society? What contributes to the imaging of blowing the whistle? How can we influence this?

Where: Jaarbeursboulevard 300, Utrecht, Netherlands
- Teun Gautier – Founder of PubLeaks
- Paul Tijnagel – Risk & Compliance Officer

Transparency International is committed to the worldwide protection of whistleblowers and journalists’ sources. Many recent scandals would have never been revealed without the reporting of these courageous people.
LuxLeaks, the Panama Papers, the car makers’ dieselgate fraud, and the abuse of data by Cambridge Analytica are just a few examples.
In each case, an individual blew the whistle, putting their own reputation and career at stake.
