This year, the European Commission (EC) launched an initiative on whistleblowing following the mobilisation of European civil society. If it is carried through, the European Commission initiative could lead to a directive improving the protection offered to whistleblowers and the way in which their revelations are dealt with. We will present the ongoing mobilisation and propose that participants think of ways to bolster them.
