International Labour Organization Issues Annual Report

The ILO Office of the Mediator (which functions as an organizational Ombuds), has published its report for 2008. Director Asha Singh Williams reports that her office handled 201 cases in the past year, an increase of 32 from 2007. However, she emphasized that she perceives the increase as a positive indicator: more staff are using the informal conflict resolution mechanism. The ILO Office of the Mediator also provided information and assistance to other NGO at the annual meeting of the UN System Network of Ombudsmen and Mediators held in Washington in July 2008.
