The Paradoxical Approaches to Whistleblowing Brochure


The event, is co-organized by Prof. Paul Fiorelli (Xavier University), Dr. Costantino Grasso (Manchester Law School), and Dr. Donato Vozza (Roehampton Law School).


This event aims to explore, from a pan-Atlantic perspective, the moral and legal paradoxes inherent in a society where whistleblowers play a crucial role in uncovering unlawful and unethical actions within both private and public organizations while simultaneously encountering challenges, such as retaliation, which can even be an expression of the state's punitive power.

The roundtable will consist of two sessions: "Comparing EU and US Whistleblowing Laws" and "Whistleblowers between Punishment and Rewards." Throughout these sessions, we will delve into the legal frameworks, ethical considerations, and practical implications of whistleblowing. Experts will discuss legislation such as the False Claims Act and Sarbanes-Oxley, as well as the EU Whistleblower Directive, shedding light on the complexities of promoting transparency and protecting whistleblower rights. Academics, professionals, and corporate leaders will discuss best practices for fostering an environment conducive to disclosure while confronting systemic failures in protecting whistleblowers from reprisals. Furthermore, the discussion will focus on the adoption of financial incentives to encourage reporting misconduct, thereby promoting accountability and transparency.
