English summary: Simon Gerdemann explores the origins, characteristics and ramifications of whistleblowing laws in the United States, analyzes the consequences the current rise and adoption of whistleblowing laws has on European countries like Germany and shows how learning from past experiences in the United States could shape the whistleblowing laws of tomorrow. German description: "Whistleblowing" - wohl kein anderer englischsprachiger Rechtsbegriff kann in den letzten Jahren auf eine vergleichbare Karriere sowohl in der offentlichen Diskussion und internationalen Wirtschaftspraxis als auch der deutschen Rechtswissenschaft und Rechtspolitik zuruckblicken.Simon Gerdemann geht den Ursprungen und Hintergrunden des modernen Whistleblowingrechts in den USA aus historischer, empirischer und rechtsdogmatischer Perspektive auf den Grund. Er zeigt auf, wie Whistleblowing uber Landes- und Rechtsgebietsgrenzen hinweg seinen Weg nach Deutschland gefunden hat, welche aktuellen Folgen seine Diskussion und Adaption fur das deutsche Arbeits-, Gesellschafts-, Datenschutz- und Verwaltungsrecht haben und wie man die Erfahrungswerte aus 150 Jahren der Geschichte des Whistleblowingrechts in den USA nutzen kann, um die Zukunft des Whistleblowings in Deutschland sinnvoll zu gestalten.
