Whistleblower Resources


With support from the National Endowment for Democracy, CIPE’s Anti-Corruption and Governance Center (ACGC) established the Whistleblower Resource Catalogue as part of our Rapid Response initiative.

This catalogue highlights a number of resources for potential and existing whistleblowers, so they can make an informed decision on if, when, and how they want to blow the whistle and the risks associated with doing so.  The catalogue has a variety of resources that can be applied to potential whistleblowers globally, with resources in currently available in English, Spanish, and French.  With this in mind, the ACGC aims to make this a living, public resource where users can suggest resources that they think would be good additions to the package.

To suggest resources to add to the catalogue, please email Program Officer, Richard Christel at rchristel@cipe.org

CIPE and ACGC do not endorse any of these materials or the organizations included therein. Our tool is simply a resource aggregator. We do not investigate claims nor will we refer individuals to counsel. This list is simply to be informative of whistleblower support materials that already exist.

If you would like your organization’s resources removed from this database, please also email rchristel@cipe.org.
