Whistling While They Work 2 (WWTW 2) is a three year Australian Research Council Linkage project which investigates how organisational responses to public interest whistleblowing can be improved in Australia and New Zealand. It was launched in New Zealand this month.
The project is being led by international expert, Professor A J Brown, of Griffith University, Australia. WWTW2 has a 10 member research team, 15 partner organisations and a number of supporter organisations.
The State Services Commission, Victoria University of Wellington and the New Zealand Ombudsman are supporting the project.
WWTW2 is investigating the internal reporting of suspected wrongdoing in the private, public and not-for-profit sectors. Any organisation with more than 10 employees, based in or with significant operations in New Zealand or Australia, is invited to participate in the project.
