2017 – 2019 OGP Action Plan, Commitment #6

In an effort to strengthen the current law, the State Chancellery and the Corruption Prevention and Combating Bureau created mechanisms to make it easier for individuals to report potentially unethical activity by the government. These authorities will promote awareness of reporting mechanisms and conduct research on best practices for whistleblower protections. Working with civil society organization like Transparency International, this commitment has the potential to restore trust in public institutions, help prevent corruption and abuses of power, and promote workplace openness and democratically responsible behavior.
