Take the global survey of journalists working with whistleblowers

Every day around the world journalists work with anonymous people seeking to blow the whistle on corporate and governmental breaches and abuses, often at great risk to their own safety and livelihoods.

The threats they face have increased dramatically in the Digital Age, so what are the implications for journalists’ obligations to whistleblowers, and how can they best protect them as confidential sources?

Blueprint for Free Speech is producing a handbook for journalists that will lay out emerging best practices and principles for working with whistleblowers in the context of mass surveillance, national security overreach, and data.

The project, which has received funding from Open Society Foundations, is led by researcher Julie Posetti and Blueprint's executive director Dr Suelette Dreyfus.
