Whistleblowing Protection – the G20 and Australia

The results of the first independent assessment of whistleblowing laws across the G20 countries, ‘Whistleblower Protection Laws in G20 Countries: Priorities for Action’, was released in the lead-up to the Australian-hosted G20 Leaders’ summit in Brisbane in November 2014. A paper by Prof. AJ Brown, highlights Why anti-corruption remains a vital element of the G20 leaders’ agenda.

 

TI Unmask the Corrupt Campaign

The TI Unmask the Corrupt Campaign was recently launched. It aims to stop corrupt business people and politicians from hiding their identity and illegal activities, escape justice and enjoy luxury lifestyles funded by stolen public money. The TI website invites active involvement in the campaign.
