IOI Publishes Papers from Stockholm 2009 Conference

The International Ombudsman Institute has posted papers from presenters at its World Conference celebrating the Bicentennial of the Swedish Parliamentary Ombudsman.

The IOI World Conference on June 9-12, 2009 convened 340 delegates and observers from more than 90 countries.  The conference opened with keynote addresses by the former Secretary General of the United Nations, Kofi A. Annan and the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights, Navanethem Pillay. This was followed by dozens of presentations by delegates and invited guests representing the range of Ombuds practice and traditions (although nothing about Organizational Ombuds). The IOI has now put online the remarks from the keynote addresses, plenary sessions and workshops. The materials also will be published by the Swedish Parliamentary Ombudsmen’s Office in two separate volumes. (IOI Publications.)
