WIN's Anna Myers was delighted to contribute a chapter 'All I Ever Wanted to Know About Whistleblowing ...' which explores a short 20-year history of whistleblowing law and practice. She describes the cultural, political and economic context in which the Public Interest Disclosure Act, 1998 was adopted and what she learned about its legal and practical implications.  Anna connects the protection of whistleblowers to the concept of public accountability and describes the inherent tension this creates in an era of de-regulation and globalising business growth.  Anna challenges the reader to consider their wider collective responsibility.  If we believe that whistleblowers are increasingly essential to holding power to account, what are we doing to help them make a difference?
