The protection of whistle-blowers in the banking and financial sector: an analysis of the EU legal framework (by Dimitrios Kafteranis)

The recently adopted EU Directive places the whistle-blower as an enforcement tool for the better implementation of EU law. Sectoral provisions on whistle-blowing existed already at the EU level in the banking and financial sector. The purpose of the thesis is to analyse the different protections offered at the EU banking and financial sector in order to evaluate the level of protection that the whistle-blower can enjoy.
