This chapter reviews the literature on the role of culture and nationality in whistleblowing. Cross-national research shows these factors play a role which is not as straightforward as we might intuitively expect. I point out a number of 'universals' with regard to whistleblowing and explain why we are witnessing a globalization of whistleblowing protection despite cultural differences. I conclude with some ideas for future research that might inform practice.
