What is Initiative 11?

Initiative 11 is a coalition of Ukrainian and international NGOs that support protection for whistleblowers, transparency in government and the fight against corruption.

In May 2015, a set of NGOs and interested parties met for an inaugural roundtable in Kiev, to discuss the importance of whistleblower protection in Ukraine. Following the conference, a coalition was formed (“Initiative 11”) whose first task was to prepare and advocate for whistleblower protection legislation in Ukraine.

Following this meeting, representatives from each of the NGOs forming the coalition worked together to produce a Draft Law for the Protection of Whistleblower in Ukraine.
