IOI – Connecting Public Service
Ombudsmen Globally

On behalf of IOI community, IOI President Peter Tyndall and IOI Secretary General Kräuter issued a statement of solidarity with the Office of the Public Defender of Georgia.
IOI Secretary General and Austrian Ombudsman Günther Kräuter attended the OSCE Parallel Civil Society Conference 2017 in Vienna on 5 December, in order to discuss the results of the OSCE self-evaluation process.
The Asian Region of the IOI held an electronic ballot to fill the vacant position of one Asian Director on the IOI Board of Directors. Ms Un-Jong Pak, Chairperson of the Anti-Corruption & Civil Rights Commission in Korea, received the highest number of votes and was therefore declared elected as new Asian Director.
