Research title: Accountability for Corruption: The Case of Whistleblowing Arrangements in Government Sector

Research Summary

Public participation or stakeholder engagement in corruption control is a new approach in corruption control. Whistleblowing is one of an example of the emerging practice in corruption control. There is an exceptional growth in the implementation of whistleblowing practice. In Indonesia, there are many government organisations implement whistleblowing practice as a part of accountability and corruption control as well as good governance project.

The subject of whistleblowing has received considerable scholarly interest from as early as the 1980s. Much research has since been conducted in an attempt to shed light on this phenomenon. The discussion about whistleblowing mostly focuses on the whistle-blower. A significant stream of literature has investigated the motivations and personality of whistle-blowers. However, the organisational research of whistleblowing is one of the neglected research areas. Therefore, this research will focus on the institutionalisation of whistleblowing to fill this research gap.

Specifically, the works behind whistleblowing practice itself obtained lack of attention in whistleblowing studies. Until now, there is lack of research that explains how significant actors create and maintain whistle-blowing and how they disrupt corruption enabling-institutional logic to enable whistleblowing. Also, despite the growth in implementation of whistleblowing practice, relatively few studies in whistleblowing literature have considered the contextual readiness of whistleblowing practice. This research will explore not only the process of the initiation, institutionalisation and implementation at the organisational but also the field dynamics for the whistleblowing practice.
