IACA at the European Forum Alpbach

At his year’s European Forum Alpbach IACA curated two important anti-corruption events.

The first one was the High Level Panel on Corruption and Sustainable Development: Joining the Fight against Corruption. It involved the 8th United Nations Secretary-General, Ban Ki-moon; the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights, Michelle Bachelet; Secretary-General of the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development, José Ángel Gurria; and Nobel Peace Laureate, Muhammad Yunus. The High Level Panel focused on issues related to effective anti-corruption measures for the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), which would create necessary conditions for the promotion of democracy, sustainable economies, prosperous societies, social cohesion, justice, and the rule of law.

The second Panel on Effective Anti-Corruption Whistleblower Protection  involved the Fairfax Group President, Michael Hershman; journalist and members of the Daphne Caruana Galizia Foundation, Corinne Vela; and former UN Special Rapporteur on the Promotion of Freedom of Expression, David Kaye. It was moderated by Whistleblowing International Network’s Executive Director, Anna Myers. Exploring challenges for the implementation of effective whistleblower protection frameworks in the public and private sectors was at the heart of this session.
