Information and Recommendations regarding the use of whistleblower programs to combat corruption, specifically Money-Laundering and Environmental Corruption:

Statement of the National Whistleblower Center
Submitted to the 10th UNCAC Conference of States Parties

Whistleblowers, or those who report corruption and other forms of wrongdoing, are essential to
the fight against corruption. Global and regional anti-corruption treaties recognize the vitalness
of whistleblowers to anti-corruption efforts and require or encourage enhanced whistleblower
protection.1 However, whistleblowers remain extremely vulnerable worldwide due to lack of
formal protections, as required under international law. Moreover, the lack of implementation of
and participation in whistleblower best-practice whistleblower programs limits States’ ability to
identify and prosecute corruption.
