After the outbreak of some world-famous scandals (Wikileaks, LuxLeaks, Panama Papers ...) the debate on the democratic role of the so-called "whistleblowers" finally rose up at European level. At the time when the European Parliament was approving a resolution on whistleblowing, while civil society and politics was beginning to recognize the role played by whistleblowers in the public interest and therefore the need to protect them, OBCT published an analysis and asked from its network of media partners to go deeply into the subject.
This dossier collects contributions from 14 media operating in South East Europe, media partners within ECPMF project. The translation into Italian and English is curated by OBCT.
