As most of you know, the pandemic has put a halt on face to face events and as much as we cannot wait to have our community back sharing knowledge and networking face-to-fave , our shift to virtual events has brought about its own benefits.
One being that with no jurisdictional/location barriers, we've been able to reach and engage with a wider audience and facilitate conversations with speakers from all over the world.
Speaking of conversations from all over the world - we'd like to share with you a paper by Dr. Ahmad Barak from the Palestinian Anti-Corruption Commission on the The Legal System for the Protection of Whistleblowers.
The paper provides an interesting comparative analysis between the regimes of different countries in the Arab world. Starting off with some insight into the Palestinian legal system's stance on the protection of whistleblowers and moving into analyses of other legal systems across the Arab World. The paper also emphasises the importance of international cooperation as well as local institutional collaboration in securing adequate protection for whistleblowers and the need to ensure more protection for those involved in corruption cases in particular.
