Breaking the Silence: The Efficacy of Whistleblowing in Improving Transparency

Siti Noor Azmawaty Abd Razak, Wan Nurul Basirah Wan Mohamad Noor, Maheran Zakaria

Abstract: There has been a substantial increase in the recognition of the importance of whistleblowing as a means of reducing corruption. It could enhance a country’s Corruption Perception Index (CPI) scor es and indirectly enhance her dignity. While recognizing that whistleblowing is a powerful tool to prevent and detect malpractices, very few decided to blow the whistle due to the fear of retaliation, legal liabilities and cultural oppositions. These barriers should be removed in order to internalize whistleblowing as a positive means of improving transparency in the organizations, over and above the government as a whole.
