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. However, the resources here cover a wide-range of viewpoints and perspectives and are not specifically endorsed by the Network.
