The Inspection Panel on December 8 will host a virtual discussion on reprisals against those involved in complaints to independent accountability mechanisms.
The discussion—which will be streamed live on YouTube at this link—will coincide with the publication of the seventh report in the Panel’s Emerging Lessons Series. The report—titled “Right to be Heard: Intimidation and Reprisals in World Bank Inspection Panel Complaints”—is based on the Panel’s expe¬rience and practice responding to allegations of reprisals since its inception nearly 30 years ago.
The report will be available on the websites of the Inspection Panel and World Bank Accountability Mechanism on December 7.
The December 8 discussion will run from 8-10 am US EST time.
