The European Committee on Legal Co-operation (CDCJ) today issued a report evaluating the state of play for the protection of whistleblowers in Europe. The report analyses whistleblower protection frameworks in Council of Europe member states since the adoption of the Recommendation CM/Rec(2014)7 on the protection of whistleblowers and identifies good practices and positive developments.

It also reviews the evolving jurisprudence of the European Court of Human Rights and provides a comparative analysis with European Union Standards, notably Directive (EU) 2019/1937. Moreover, the report  identifies areas for reform and proposes steps to strengthen  whistleblower protection laws and European standards.

The report, prepared by Anna Myers under the supervision of the European Committee on legal Co-operation, is a contribution to the work of the CDCJ on whistleblower protection in the context of regular reviews of the impact of the Recommendation CM/Rec(2014)7.
