Abstract

This chapter examines the principles, problems, and prospects of whistleblowing in the international public service: its significance, relevant laws, and bureaucratic institutions. The discussion begins with whistleblowing based largely on the American experience, because it has some of the most extensive whistleblowing policies in the world. Following a brief summary of the literature, whistleblowing concepts, and the transnational civil service are examined. While not limited to one international agency, the focus is on the United Nations as the world’s largest federation of nation states. The analysis closes with an exploration of whistleblowing guidelines and best practice in the global administrative structure.
