Abstract: 

There is growing awareness of the important role whistleblowing plays in stopping corruption. This guide touches on whistleblowing provisions across the MENA region; the conditions that need to be met for whistleblowers to feel safe; as well as tips and arguments for campaigning for enhanced whistleblower safeguards. It draws from TI research on whistleblowing and consultations with partners in the region. It explores some of the steps organisations might want to take in supporting whistleblowers and the steps whistleblowers might take before and after speaking up.
