You can now find a section on our website where we gather different reports and studies regarding whistleblowing and whistleblowing practices. We hope to keep this resource up to date and add any material that could prove to be useful in the transposition process of the EU directive on the protection on persons reporting on breaches of Union law, i.e. "the whistleblower directive. You can access the resource library here.

If you would like to suggest any reports that should be added to the resources, please feel to drop us a line at secretariat[a]eurocadres.eu.
