Abstract [en]

This study aims to investigate, from an institutional perspective, the implications of the

new anti-corruption law in Viet Nam with a particular focus on its impact on civil society

and individual rights to report on corruption. The overarching research question is: How do

formal and informal institutions affect whistle-blowers possibilities to engage in combat of

corruption in Viet Nam? To blow the whistle in Viet Nam can be problematic, with

consequences such as loosing his/hers job and social exclusion. Whistle-blowers in Viet

Nam today seem to have an insufficient confidence to official authorities. Moreover, a

problem of significance is that whistle-blowers have to state their name and contact details

when reporting on corrupt acts to competent agencies. Another problem is that civil society

is strongly connected to the CPV (Communist Party of Viet Nam).
