Establishing a policy and building a culture that helps to protect organizations from financial wrong-doing, criminal or civil liability and permanent damage to corporate reputation has become a central theme of contemporary corporate policies towards 'whistleblowing'. This book is amongst the first to provide a detailed and full-length analysis of the meaning and various justifications of whistleblowing policies. While the legitimization of organizational whistleblowing suggests an adaptation of organizations to public opinion, this book examines the wider legitimization whistleblowing policies have been given, considering whether the establishment of 'policies' genuinely leads to the implicit institutionalization of whistleblowing itself. The book's particular focus is upon what kinds of 'whistleblowing' societies and organizations actually want, and whether policies developed as a result meet expectations.

Review:

'During the past decade, Western countries have introduced a large amount of whistleblowing legislation. We analysed the cases, discussed best practices and policy effectiveness, but nobody ever questioned the legitimation structures behind the legislation. A timely book that reveals the true ethics of whistleblowing policies.' Luc Van Liedekerke, University of Leuven and Antwerpen, Belgium '...Vandekerckhove offers an exhaustive analysis of legitimization constructs and legislative implementations of whistleblowing policies all over the world...a must read for all practitioners that have to sell, market, oppose, lobby, or use a particular whistleblowing policy...'
