Chapter 13: Global whistleblower laws
The last two decades have witnessed a new generation of global whistleblower laws. These laws respond to conditions in each of the countries in which they have been enacted, but also represent broader global movements. They can be found in several nations in Europe, including states formerly parts of the Soviet Union and Eastern European states that were within the sphere of influence of the Soviet Union.

A number of international treaties and conventions mandate whistleblower laws, and powerful international organizations have adopted whistleblower protections.
