Welcome to the International Whistleblowing Forum
Protection of whistleblowers is one of the most important matters in the public debate nowadays. It is a topical issue in the context of the EU directive 2019/1937 on whistleblower protection, which shall be implemented in the legal systems across the European Union by December 17th 2021. We believe that the problem requires comprehensive study and thorough analysis of legal provisions currently in force, with reference to the historical perspective, since the practices of whistleblowing, as well as the protection of whistleblowers, are not new concepts, being rooted in many legal institutions.
The Conference is addressed to researchers, doctoral candidates, students, and legal practitioners interested in this topic. We hope that our suggestions and conclusions will be of use for legislative bodies in their search for appropriate legal solutions.
The proceedings will be held online in English.
