International Organization for Migration Opens Ombuds Office

IOM, the principal intergovernmental organization in the field of migration which frequently serves as a classical Ombuds, has created an Organizational Ombuds program. The IOM Ombudsperson serves staff members with workplace and interpersonal issues, and also advises the Director General and the Staff Association Committee about issues and trends affecting staff. Daniel Rainey and the Internet Bar Organization have been consultants as IOM considers adding an online portal for the Ombuds to serve staff around the world.
