This Guide focuses on how companies can meet the twin challenges of new legislation and higher public expectations about their responsibilities in global supply chains. Driven by these changes, leading global companies are already beginning to adopt risk and supply chain management processes commensurate with the new level of risk and the increased complexity of their third-party relationships.

The goal of the Handbook is to map a variety of anti-corruption practices in EU Member States (MS) that have proved to be useful in solving problems related to corruption, and which can inspire similar initiatives elsewhere. For this purpose, one good anti-corruption practice either established or innovative, with positive impact aspirations in each EU Member State was selected, and clustered into eight types of anti-corruption approaches. The Handbook is structured along these identified types.

Over the past five years, Southeast Europe has led the world in strengthening whistleblower rights. Thanks to the hard work of policy-makers, activists, journalists and citizens, every Western Balkan country now has a whistleblower protection law on the books. All of these laws contain most European and international standards.

So, whistleblowers have nothing to worry about, right? Wrong.
Three ongoing retaliation cases show that the region has a long way to go before employees and citizens can report crime and corruption without the fear of prosecution, firing and other reprisals. The cases also reveal that strong laws are one thing. Actual protection in real life situations is something else. Read more in the first 2020 Issue of the SEE WhistleWire edition.
