Protection of whistleblowers – individuals who make a principled public interest disclosure of wrongdoing1 – is now broadly accepted as an essential tool for strengthening accountability and reducing corruption in the public and private sectors.
Anti- Corruption Resource Centre www.U4.no by Howard Whitton The Ethicos Group www.theethicosgroup.org www.U4.no December 2008 – No. 24 U4BRIEF This U4 Brief argues that aid organisations and all other public organisations should encourage staff report misconduct and corruption as part of their legal and professional duty. Protecting whistleblowers from retaliation or reprisal is a central strategy for achieving this objective. A positive management approach based on securing the organisation’s best interests, rather than ethics alone, is the key to success.
