Whistleblowers perform a vital role in society, alerting the public to financial fraud, abuse in institutions and potential environmental disasters. But many genuine whistleblowers find themselves without a source of income and with little prospect of sourcing further work in their chosen career. If this situation does not change, fewer and fewer whistleblowers will come forward.
In an 18-month study between 2016 and 2018 the Whitaker Institute
team interviewed 58 whistleblowers and 17 experts, and gathered quantitative data from a survey of 92 whistleblowers who had left their current role as a result of speaking out. The findings of this research are available here
