Protection, Promotion and Development of the Ombudsman Institution

In recent years Ombudsman institutions across Europe have increasingly encountered threats to their effectiveness and independence. Against this background the Recommendation CM/Rec(2019)6 of the Committee of Ministers to Member States on the development of the Ombudsman institution sets out principles regarding the establishment of an Ombudsman institution, its fundamental characteristics and main tasks, and provides guidance on how to ensure cooperation and dialogue between the Ombudsman and the State as well as all other relevant stakeholders.

The present publication also includes a selection of good national practices which highlight the application of these standards in Europe.
