Receiving and solving public interest disclosures: legal nature and responsibilities in managing them


PhD. candidate Iuliana COSPANARU


Whistleblowing - public interest reporting or disclosure made by a person working in the apparatus of a public entity, aware of details of the administrative activity, otherwise non-accessible to third parties or the general public - plays an important role in preventing or early detecting those situations in which non-compliance with the principles of administrative procedural law may affect the validity of documents, the performance of the legal competencies of the institution or citizens` rights. This paper explores the legal nature of the whistleblowing report and what are the legal obligations that derive from this nature, with the aim of identifying what are the institutional structures responsible to manage it, what role plays each of these structures and how whistleblowing complaints should be handled such as to maximize its benefits for the public institution.
