CANCELLED: Whistleblowing in cases of Corporate Criminal Liability: The Missing Piece or Last Resort?

Date, time: 18 March 2020, 8.30-9.30

Place: Bergen Global, Jekteviksbakken 31

Law enforcement agencies in many developed and developing countries have increasingly come to rely on whistleblowers as important parts of the corporate liability puzzle. Some of biggest scandals uncovered have been brought to light by whistleblowers. This explains the emphasis on laws in several jurisdictions protecting those that do decide to expose hidden crime. But given the impact of corporate crime on democracy and rule of law, should whistleblowing be relied on as the missing piece in cases of corporate criminal liability or should it be treated as the last resort when all else fails?

Coffee, tea and croissants will be served. The event is free and all are welcome to attend!
