SLAPP, crushing down anti-corruption defenders
U4 is pleased to invite you to a webinar on Strategic Litigation Against Public Participation (SLAPP).

SLAPP has become common in many countries. Companies, public officials, and high-profile persons initiate SLAPP against media and civil society organisations as well as individuals such as journalists, activists, researchers, and whistleblowers.

Such lawsuits are powerful legal tools that aim at stopping, suppressing, and silencing those that speak out to defend the public interest, protect the environment and human rights, or combat corruption and tax evasion.

Through this webinar, you will hear stories from journalists, whistleblowers, and civil society organisations that work to uncover corruption and tax evasion. They describe the consequences of SLAPP and point to opportunities for action by donor agencies.
