Abstract: PLEASE NOTE THAT THIS PAPER COULD BE INCLUDED INTO THE CR10 Discussion Group Panel's work led by Tanina Rostain.

Russia has had a difficult history with corruption. Whistleblowing was at times mandated by the state, and, hence, is not popular today because of distrust on the part of the population towards the state which was in the role of oppressor for the 70-plus years of the Soviet rule, as well as prior to that during the Szarist period. Hence, there is much resistance towards whistleblowing on the part of Russians. However, spurred by European laweyers, a new form of whistleblowing has emerged in modern-day Russia - environmental whistleblowing. This paper will examine the impact of international lawyers and law on altering Russian national resistance towards whistleblowing.

Abstract: This study interviewed government whistleblowers to understand how whistleblowing affected their relationships with their employers. It also elicited their suggestions for ways in which public relations practitioners could interact with whistleblowers for the betterment of the organization and the whistleblower. This study explored the implications of four theories on whistleblowing: organizational justice theory, normalization of corruption theory, resource dependence theory, and relationship management theory. It found that whistleblowing has a negative impact on relationships; government whistleblowers feel corrupt practices were institutionalized in their organizations; their organizations relied on wrongdoing; and their treatment by their employers was unjust. The study also pointed out the negligible role those public relations practitioners have played with whistleblowers within government organizations.

Abstract: Mr. Criscione, an experienced nuclear risk-analysis engineer, will describe his experience being referred for criminal investigation after accusing the U.S Nuclear Regulatory Commission of downplaying and withholding information about flood risks for nuclear plants sited on waterways downstream from reservoirs and dams. He shared his concerns with members of Congress, and his concerns were leaked to the media. The NRC Inspector General investigated whether Crisicone leaked the information outside the agency, which he had not, and also asked the Department of Justice to investigate and prosecute Criscione if necessary. The DoJ found that Criscione did not violate any federal statutes in raising his concerns.

Abstract: The government in a parliamentary system generally enjoys exceptional power over legislation. The legislative opposition uses procedural prerogatives at its disposal such as proposing amendments - usually without a successful outcome. In this paper, I consider whether the use of these procedures - even when they are unsuccessful - can alter the government's behavior in a way that enhances responsiveness to voters. Specifically, I develop a formal model that examines the conditions under which the opposition's objections to policy proposals help voters to monitor the government. The model assumes that the opposition needs to exert effort to attract the attention of voters, who face nontrivial costs to evaluate information. I show that an electorally strong opposition with moderate activists may fail to warn voters against policy proposals that diverge from voters' preferences. On the other hand, if the opposition is electorally weak or has extreme activists, its messages lose credibility.
