Walking the line: transparency vs witness welfare

Reception of the Victorian Inspectorate. A woman is sitting at the reception desk typing.
Join the Victorian Inspectorate in a discussion about the challenges for integrity bodies when balancing transparency with witness welfare.

You will learn about the complex issues facing anti-corruption commissions and other integrity bodies when deciding between public and private hearings and reports.

While transparency sounds fair, what about the impact on witness welfare? Can impact be minimised? How do decision makers weigh what is in the public interest? In the context of recent reports on witness welfare and the commencement of the National Anti-Corruption Commission, these are significant questions.

Come inside the Victorian Inspectorate’s private hearing room for this topical session.
