This Guide on the EU Directive on Whistleblower Protection is based on the main principles of the Whistleblowing Directive. As well as laying out the common minimum standards for a national whistleblowing law, there are recommendations on how national laws can extend the level of protection to close loopholes and ensure comprehensive protection for anyone who exposes corruption or other wrongdoing.
The objective of these country profiles is to know the quantity, quality, sources, formats, structure and kind of procurement information available in each of the countries. It serves as technical working document for fulfilling goals of the project.
This goal is to have a good understanding of the overall situation so we can: design the toolkit (making sure we make the most of the data available), prepare the investigations (knowing which info we can use and compare) and begin to plan the advocacy part (knowing sources and basic differences on legislation). Also, it could be useful as part of our learning materials for each country. The publication presents country profiles by categories.
The publication contains 100+ risk indicators collected from different projects and aims to serve as a stepping stone for developers, resource for academics, and a positive example of data sharing under Creative Commons for the activists in the field.
