Blowback: The Dangers of Whistleblowing – For Both Sources and Journalists
The need for stronger protection for whistleblowers is regularly discussed but far less attention is given to addressing the dangers of whistleblowing before the decision to raise concerns has even been made. How can we help those that want to speak up about corruption or abuse to do it in ways that minimise these dangers before it’s too late? And ways that maximise the chances of getting a good outcome for both journalist and source?
In this seminar, Investigative Practice aimed to move beyond general calls for whistleblower protection after the fact to identify more effective and safer methods for divulging information in the public interest.
