2016-02-29 Whistleblowers, defenders of democracy?

Radio UF takes a good look at the heroes of today; whistleblowers! Or are they our heroes? And what is the price to pay for turning against your employer? We hear the story of Kathryn Bolkovac who exposed UN staff’s involvement in sex trafficking in Bosnia and Herzegovina. We talk to Anja Osterhaus from Transparency International about how whistleblowers are treated around the world. Is whistleblowing the key to a functioning democracy? Or is it the other way around? Listen in and join the discussion.

Thank you for listening!
