Plenary IV: Don't Let Them Get Away With It: Investigating & Exposing the Truth

Log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Now more than ever ordinary citizens, journalists and advocates from all fields have the necessary tools to blow the whistle on corruption. A few clicks can enable anyone to expose corruption globally; an emerging culture of collaboration allows investigative journalists to uncover systemic international corruption cases while advocates from around the world increasingly use journalism style investigations to strengthen their advocacy work. But despite this progress, or perhaps because of this progress, the risks for those who speak out are bigger than ever. Effective collaboration between these groups remains weak.

The purpose of this session is twofold: By identifying the main barriers that prevent citizens, journalists and advocates from working together more effectively this session aims to produce concrete recommendations for the global community at large to take on. In looking at supporting those who speak out against corruption the session will identify concrete actions the global community needs to embrace in order to reverse an increasingly dangerous national and international environment.
