PARIS EVENT: Whistleblowing and Codes of Conduct in France and the United Kingdom

23 May 2016

Time: 6:30 - 8:30pm
Venue: ULIP, 9-11 rue de Constantine, Paris 7e

The fight against corruption and globalisation of the economy have led States progressively to develop laws which provide for companies' adoption of whistleblowing systems and codes of conduct. The protection of whistleblowers and the broadening of whistleblowing systems to other fields have been raised. This seminar will discuss French and British perspectives on these matters.
