Government Accountability Project

Research on the Effectiveness of European Whistleblower Laws

Posted April 18, 2019

Many countries have enacted whistleblower protection laws but little is known about how they are being implemented in reality. Government Accountability Project is seeking legal researchers who are fluent in one or more of the following languages: Hebrew, Japanese, Maltese, Portuguese, Spanish, Korean, Malaysian. Volunteers will be responsible for finding whistleblower case law in their assigned country and analyzing the cases to determine various factors such as whether or not the whistleblower prevailed, the remedies provided to prevailing whistleblowers, and the length of time of the case. Volunteers will be provided access to a google spreadsheet with set criteria where the case information should be populated and a research log should be maintained. This is a short-term project that must be completed no later than June 10, 2019. The volunteer will be given credit in the publication that results from the findings and the research will be presented at the International Whistleblowing Research Network Conference in Utrecht on June 18, 2019.

Government Accountability Project

Government Accountability Project is the nation’s leading whistleblower protection and advocacy organization, having assisted over 8,000 whistleblowers since its founding in 1977. We help whistleblowers hold government and corporate institutions accountable by presenting their verified concerns to public officials, advocacy groups, and journalists, and seeking justice when they suffer reprisal. Government Accountability Project has drafted, spearheaded the campaigns to pass, or helped defend all the federal whistleblower protection laws that exist today. We have unique expertise, earned over 40 years, in minimizing the risk and maximizing the effectiveness of whistleblowing.
