Changemaking power in the EU - An assessment of coalition impact on the 2018 Whistleblower Protection Law Proposal
MetadataShow full item record
This pathway case study of the legislative process towards a horizontal whistleblower protection law on EU level seeks to assess which societal actors and efforts of advocacy were relevant to the outcome of the first draft proposal. Through a twofold analysis of the interests presented by societal actors and the comparison of the outcome of the directive proposal on whistleblower protection, I suggest that the entities advocating horizontal protection, with a core of a advocacy coalition, had considerably more impact on the directive than the other interested parties. The process tracing and analysis of coalition key members own review of their advocacy strategies and success, show both that coalition was an important strategy by the entities and that the coalition attained a high attributed influence on the directive proposal.
