Last year we sent to the authorities suggestions and proposals to make of the Law of integrity whistleblowers a legal framework as firm as possible, which would guarantee their protection.
We believe that whistleblowers are a fundamental link in maintaining ethical and integrity work, both in institutions and in any other professional environment. So, this month, on August 28, we are organizing together with the Recorder and the expert Codru Vrabie an introductory workshop on whistleblowers. Participants will learn about the legislation that currently protects them and will be presented with concrete examples of collaboration between whistleblowers and the media / NGOs.
When? 28th of August, at 15:00
Where? Hotel Capitol, Bucharest
Who we're inviting: NGOs and journalists who want to know more about what it means to be a whistleblower and how we can protect them

With tens of millions of views on YouTube alone, Alex Nedea's investigations have brought about important changes in Romanian society in recent years: laws have been changed, criminal cases have been opened and important politicians have been dismissed.
