Speaking Up: Protecting Whistleblowers in Central and Eastern Europe

Explore how the recently introduced EU Directive 2019/1937 on safeguarding whistleblowers could pave the way for better protection of individuals who report misconduct. This report delves into the ways in which individual member states of the European Union (EU), such as Bulgaria, Hungary, Romania, and Slovakia, are incorporating the Directive into their respective national laws. If successfully implemented, the Directive has the potential to have a transformative impact on governance, integrity and anti-corruption efforts in the EU.

The CEELI Institute has collaborated with civil society organizations in each of these regions to provide practical recommendations that can assist in the implementation of the EU Directive. Don't miss out on this opportunity to learn about the most recent developments in whistleblower protection legislation, which have been made possible through a grant from the US Department of State’s Bureau of Democracy, Human Rights, and Labor (DRL).
