The Academy to establish a whistle-blowing panel

In a letter to the Ministry of Education, the Oslo National Academy of the Arts has detailed its plan for processing the whistle-blowing case that the ministry was notified of before Christmas. As part of the Academy’s action plan for a safe educational and working environment, one of the measures of immediate priority concerns founding a whistle-blowing panel.

Letter dated 12 January 2018 from the Oslo National Academy of the Arts to the Ministry of Education and its appendix with an action plan (only Norwegian).

The whistle-blowing panel will consist of external and internal members. The ambition is to make it both easier and safer to report possible violations of the Academy’s ethical guidelines.

The Academy’s leadership has decided to create an action plan for a safe educational and working environment in order to ensure that the Academy’s systems and procedures are well-suited for uncovering and countering bullying and harassment.

The action plan includes several immediate measures and will also focus on dual relations and evaluate the Academy’ systems, organisation, culture and competence.
