WIDELY EXPANDING ANONYMOUS TIPPING TECHNOLOGY DEPLOYMENT, OPERATION, AND TRUSTWORTHINESS TO COMBAT CORRUPTION IN EASTERN AND SOUTHERN EUROPE
The purpose of EAT is to provide a way for blowing the whistle against corruption through a guaranteed anonymous and secure mechanism provided by GlobaLeaks.
EAT aims to promote a whistleblowing culture and ultimately contribute to a lower level of corruption and empower civil society.
It is a two-year project developed by civil society organisations from the top 10 countries with the highest level of corruption in Europe, according to Transparency International’s Corruption Perceptions Index, and funded by the European Commission.
EAT will allow private and public sector organisations to implement GlobaLeaks and choose between 3 separate secure and anonymous submission models; MODEL A in which the submitted disclosures will be sent to an officer of the beneficiary organisation; MODEL B which involves the responsible EAT partner who will be notified of the submission and MODEL C with an external and parallel channel associated with a media organisation.
