Conversation – Why to raise the alarm in the workplace?

How to raise concerns through whistleblowing in the workplace? Whistleblowers are often unsure whether they will be protected or not. 

Transparency International Latvia and it’ s initiative Alliance against Corruption in Latvia has published a handbook for whistleblowers, which step by step explains what is whistleblowing and how to raise the alarm in the workplace. 

We invite to this discussion potential whistleblowers, business representatives and representatives of national and municipal bodies, prosecutors, judges, research fellows, journalists, students, and other interested parties to talk about how to facilitate whistleblowing, strengthen whistleblowing systems and to protect whistleblowers.

Conversation – Cryptocurrencies and money laundering. How to prevent these crimes? 

What risks of money laundering will Latvia face in the upcoming years? Cryptocurrencies are getting popular worldwide and in Latvia, this type of currency is used to make money laundering less visible in order to hide the origin of illicit money. 

How to prevent cryptocurrency crimes? What is our knowledge? What is our capacity? 

We invite experts to this discussion to disclosure current cryptocurrency challenges and to share international and Latvian experience and practice in fighting cryptocurrency crimes in money laundering schemes.
