This Webinar "The Protection of Whistleblowers in Africa" will be held on 3 & 4 November 2020 - 12:00-14:30 CET. This activity for trade union officials will provide on day 1 a practical introduction to the whistleblowing landscape in Africa and on day 2, whistleblowing in the workplace.
PSI affiliates in the Africa and Arab countries region have witnessed an increase in the arrests and intimidation of whistleblowers in their country.
As a follow-up to our resolution adopted at AFRECON last November, this 2-day online activity for trade union officials, will provide a practical introduction to the whistleblowing landscape in Africa. Participants will work through a practical exercise to examine a whistleblowing case and identify key issues facing union officials when dealing with a whistleblower.
We will be providing simultaneous interpretation into English and French.
This paper seeks to map out laws and practices and identify measures in place for the protection of whistle-blowers by analysing a representative sample of laws, regulations and international instruments.
