Abstract

Abstract: The paper, apart from the introduction, conclusion and list of used literature, consists of three logical units. Starting from the fact that corruption endangers the democratic values of a society, the first part of the paper presents the foundations on which the systemic approach in combating corruption is built. The second part is dedicated to the legal framework for whistleblowing within the legal system of the Republic of Serbia. Special attention is paid to the analysis of factors that have negative impact on the number of whistleblowers, i.e. the problems that whistleblowers encounter in the whistleblowing process, in particular  the absence of adequate protection and harmful consequences suffered by the whistleblower. The third part presents the characteristics and types of whistleblowing. Finally, the conclusion provides the opinion regarding improvement of the position of whistleblowers with amendments to the Law on Protection of Whistleblowers.
