About the project Edit

GlobaLeaks is the first open-source whistleblowing framework. It empowers anyone to easily set up and maintain a whistleblowing platform. GlobaLeaks can help many different types of users: media organizations, activist groups, corporations and public agencies

Themes

In what ways is this project unique and creative? Edit

GlobaLeaks is not the new WikiLeaks. In fact they have nothing in common. GlobaLeaks provides a software; WikiLeaks provides a service. GlobaLeaks is an open-source community; GlobaLeaks does not handle leaked documents; WikiLeaks does.
GlobaLeaks is not a corporate whistleblowing service. GlobaLeaks is simply free and open-source software.


What is the social value of this project? Edit

Public agencies can use GlobaLeaks to involve citizens in spotting tax evasion, corruption, market manipulation and other problems. Famous public whistleblowing services already exist and include those in the U.S IRS, U.S. SEC, and the EU Antitrust. GlobaLeaks can help protect those citizens who want to help investigators.

What is the potential of this project to expand and develop? Edit

What was the triggering factor of this project? Edit

What is the business model of this project? Edit

GlobaLeaks start-up isn't sponsored by anyone. GlobaLeaks is the result of the efforts of a group of independent developers. While it aims to remain independent and will always offer its services for free, GlobaLeaks accepts donations from third parties and individuals that support the idea of a better society through transparency.
