Protection for whistleblowing comes from:

  • public support
  • strong labour laws
  • a free media
  • an independent judiciary
  • active regulators
  • engaged civil society
  • as well as specific whistleblower protection laws.

The resources posted will help you consider whistleblowing and democracy within your own country or on an international level – from a human rights or an access to information perspective, a governance and accountability mechanism, a tool in the fight against corruption, or as a catalyst for democratic reform.

WIN’s focus is on whistleblowing as a matter of public interest and democratic accountability but the resources here cover a wide-range of view points and perspectives and are not specifically endorsed by the Network.  We hope they are helpful and informative.
