A world in which every person can easily access secure whistleblowing tools to report wrongdoings and human rights violations, to promote the values of transparency and anti-corruption. This is the vision of GlobaLeaks.
In pursuit of this vision, the mission of GlobaLeaks is to research and develop a whistleblowing project development framework.
Our mission is to promote transparency and
accountability in society. We aim to increase the involvement of citizens in managing matters of public interest and to boost active participation of employees in correcting the management of the corporations and companies that they work for.
GlobaLeaks forms a global community of human rights defenders based on the principles of international solidarity, the universality and indivisibility of human rights, impartiality, independence and diversity.
The Hermes Center for Transparency and Digital Human Rights was founded in 2011 by a group of hacktivists, lawyers and digital rights defenders to host the development and implementation of GlobaLeaks and other open source technologies with the purpose of advocating for freedom of speech online and, more generally, the protection of human rights and personal freedom in a connected world.
In 2016, the Hermes Center board decided to incorporate a social enterprise, named Whistleblowing Solutions Impresa Sociale S.r.l., to guarantee the economic sustainability of the GlobaLeaks project, through taking care of the growing number of professional requests for assistance, maintenance and custom deployment.
