The Whistleblower Campaign

The Whistleblower Campaign has begun a 21 Questions discussion on the Facebook page.
This is a prelude to the campaign launch in June, and the idea is to engage, educate and build an online audience for future campaign activities.

On 24th of May, Madeleine Rees will hold a legal conference in conjunction with The Graduate Institute in Geneva, discussing the application of international law to trafficking and sexual exploitation and abuse in the context of peacekeeping. The outcome will serve as a strong foundation for the campaign.
