Blowing the Whistle – the Cost of Courage

28 Sep 2023 @ 19:30 - 21:00 AEST

Whistleblowers play a critical role in protecting human rights and upholding democratic accountability in our country. But right now, ineffective protections, legal uncertainty and insufficient practical support are discouraging them from speaking up.


Kieran Pender will outline the ground-breaking Whistleblower Project, which combines legal advice and representation, law reform and advocacy, a first for Australia, and will compare it with practices in other countries. He is a senior lawyer at the Human Rights Law Centre.
