EU Directive on Whistleblowing
16 Dec 2019 - Present

In 2019 the European Union adopted a far-reaching Directive on the protection of persons who report breaches of Union law.

The ‘EU Directive on Whistleblowing’ entered into force on the 16th of December 2019 and each of the 27 EU Member States have until the 17th of December 2021 to transpose its provisions into their national legal and institutional systems.

The EU Whistleblowing Meter was created by the Whistleblowing International Network to track the progress of transposition across all 27 Member States.

WIN’s has published the English translation of the article ‘Heroes do not have a voice’ by Marcin Waszak at The Stefan Batory Foundation. The article details the difficulties faced by healthcare whistleblowers in Poland and the government efforts to silence them, stating ‘Defying both law and logic, those who reveal the true scale of neglect and errors across Poland’s healthcare system have been silenced since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic.’

This is a translation of an article that was published on the Batory Foundation’s forumIdei blog on 10 April 2020 which can be read here.
