Chapter 16: Old issues – new controversies
This conceptual framework identifies different perspectives of whistleblower protection and examines how those perspectives influence the character of legal standards and the scope of protections. Four perspectives – an employment one, an open-government one, a market-regulation one, and a human rights one – provide this framework. These perspectives do not simply label aspects of whistleblower laws; instead they emphasize differing justifications for whistleblower laws. Each perspective draws upon its own rhetoric and may engage contrasting groups of political actors and civil society groups. Each perspective presents different criteria for success and failure.
