Abstract:

Legal protection is an essential tool for enabling whistleblowers in Ukraine to report on corruption crimes. Most people are still afraid to publicize abuses of the law at their workplaces or in educational institutions because they fear losing their jobs or destroying their careers. This article briefly analyzes international and domestic legislation on these issues, as well as the positions of the Council of Europe and the European Union. It also discusses the efforts of the civil society organizations that united to form the ā€œInitiative 11ā€ group, which works to draft better whistleblower-protection laws and rally support for these laws. The article concludes that there remains a great need for a comprehensive whistleblower-protection law in Ukraine to facilitate the discovery and prosecution of corruption crimes.
