A Change of Direction promotes the creation of a protection framework to ensure the whole integrity of whistleblowers in the European Union and its member states. This project is the recognition of their role in the fight against corruption and the strengthening of democracy through transparency. The legal and institutional instruments are analyzed to further attain a comprehensive treatment of the issue, as well as the disclosure of unlawful processes and the different social contexts of the Union.
