Recommended draft principles for whistleblowing legislation

Earlier this year, over 30 delegates from 17 countries (including Project on Government Oversight‘s own Danielle Brian) gathered in Prague to develop a list best practices for whistleblower legislation.  The results have just been made available by Transparency International (TI), the corruption-fighting group that organized the gathering, in the form of a document entitled “Recommended draft principles for whistleblowing legislation.”

The document provides recommendations for the scope, disclosure procedures, protection, enforcement, and legislative structure of whistleblower policy.  All told, the group agreed on 27 guiding principles for developing whistleblower legislation.

Accompanying the release of the draft principles is an analysis of the whistleblower legislation in ten European countries.
