Whistleblowing is a mean to combat corruption challenges. Whistleblowers, who can be both persons from the private and the public sector, blow their whistles, thus exposing corrupted behaviors for good governance. In the private sector, whistleblowing also reflects the company’s corporate social responsibility (CSR) which manifests level of corporate transparency. Nowadays, whistleblowing in Thailand is separately and unsystematically legislated in several Acts which show lack of efficiency in whistleblowing system. Consequently, means for improving the system should be studied. Under the research, there are four efficiency assessment criteria: incentives for whistleblowing, coverage of the protected disclosures, whistleblowing procedures, and reliability of the reported information. This research concludes that the incentive is the most significant factor for enhancing efficiency of whistleblower. In addition, laws relating to whistleblowing in Thailand should recognize whistleblower protection, remedies for whistleblower, and concrete rewarding scheme.
