Transparency International is committed to the worldwide protection of whistleblowers and journalists’ sources. Many recent scandals would have never been revealed without the reporting of these courageous people. LuxLeaks, the Panama Papers, the car makers’ dieselgate fraud, and the abuse of data by Cambridge Analytica are just a few examples. In each case, an individual blew the whistle, putting their own reputation and career at stake.
