Our summer podcast series brings you some of the best conversations from our webinars and live events in 2023.
The first person will face trial in relation to Australian war crimes in Afghanistan is David McBride, the whistleblower on trial, not an alleged war criminal.
On the eve of David McBride’s trial, a distinguished panel of experts discussed what’s at stake, what it says that whistleblower not a war criminal is facing trial, and the right to truth and accountability when whistleblowers are facing prosecution.
This was recorded on Friday 10th November 2023 and things may have changed since recording.
