He </p><p>is an academic expert on whistleblowing, having researched and </p><p>published on it for more than 10 years. </p><p>He has provided expertise to various organisations, including </p><p>Public Concern at Work, Transparency International, Council of </p><p>Europe, Linklaters, and is a member of the advisory board of the </p><p>National Whistleblowing Advice Centre in the Netherlands </p><p>(Adviespunt Klokkenluiden). </p><p>About the topic </p><p>In the wake of the recent financial crisis we now more readily acknowledge the importance of </p><p>whistleblowers in detecting wrongdoing. There is now a more positive attitude towards those who raise </p><p>concerns about wrongdoing in the organisations they work in. This change in public sentiment is </p><p>accompanied by the development of new regulatory frameworks and operational challenges, both at </p><p>regulatory as well as organisational levels. </p><p></p></li><li><p>Wim will comment on some emerging trends and challenges with regard to managing whistleblowing </p><p>policies at both these levels. He will illustrate with some concrete examples at the regulatory level (i.e. </p><p>Transparency Internationals updated guidelines, the UK Whistleblowing Commission, the Council of </p><p>Europe Recommendation on Protecting Whistleblowers, recent legal changes in Europe). In general, </p><p>the push for regulators to take a more pro-active approach to whistleblowing will have implications for </p><p>organisational whistleblowing regimes. </p><p>Some of these implications are already visible, e.g. pattern identification rather than case-by-case </p><p>treatment of concerns, reversing the trend of outsourcing hotlines to in-house, an increased anxiety </p><p>not to miss the next red flag, and publicly reporting of internal whistleblowing activity. Wim will use </p><p>examples of these implications as illustrations of 5 emerging challenges with regard to managing </p><p>whistleblowing policies: indicator challenge, intervention challenge, triage-challenge, broker challenge, </p><p>and performance challenge. </p><p>About the venue </p><p>The event takes place in the beautifully restored buildings of the Antwerp Management School, Sint-</p><p>Jacobsmarkt 9-11, 2000 Antwerp. Antwerp Management School is the autonomous business school of </p><p>the University of Antwerp, and was founded in 1959.
