Who we are:
Established in 2018, WIN is a global whistleblowing membership network and the information hub for the whistleblower protection community. We work to strengthen the legal, technical and strategic skills of civil society around the world to support whistleblowers in the public interest.
Our membership includes non-profit organisations that provide access to free legal advice and support to whistleblowers. They share expertise and collaborate with those working to protect whistleblowers through law reform, investigative journalism, digital and human rights, climate justice and fighting corruption in 25+ countries.
Where we come from:
WIN developed from a small group of non-profits that built up legal, policy and advocacy expertise on whistleblowing from as early as 1980s and did their best to share their hard-won knowledge across borders. WIN was formed to respond to an urgent need to work together and share specialist skills as the importance of whistleblowing as a catalyst for holding power to account continued to increase around the world.
