EU Whistleblowing Meter monitors transposition process
A team of voluntary country editors are documenting national progress on transposition of the EU whistleblower directive. It is a tool to help everyone determine whether EU governments are living up to their obligations to protect whistleblowers.
The EU Whistleblowing Meter tracks the progress of transposition in each country. This is a singular opportunity for European nations to reinforce their democratic foundations and implement truly progressive, coherent, and consistent whistleblower rights across Europe that serve the interests of all.
European civil society has long understood that whistleblowing is about ensuring the right information gets to the right place so that action can be taken and proper oversight ensues. A team of voluntary country editors are documenting national progress on transposition to help everyone determine whether EU governments are living up to their obligations to protect whistleblowers. We will know whether countries are acting in good faith; consulting widely and openly to develop and adopt comprehensive legal and institutional whistleblower protection measures that reinforce good governance, hold decision-makers to account and allow for substantive civic engagement.
