A new book edited by Marc Hertogh and Richard Kirkham brings together leading scholars and practitioners to discuss state-of-the-art-research on the 'ombudsman' institution. 'Research Handbook on the Ombudsman' illustrates how empirical research may contribute to a better understanding of the ombudsman in action.
IOI President and Irish Ombudsman Peter Tyndall has written the foreword to the book. The public sector ombudsman has become one of the most important administrative justice institutions in many countries around the world. The book features case studies from Europe, Canada, Asia, Africa, Latin America and Australia. The book provides a comprehensive global perspective on the issues at hand and will be a valuable resource for policymakers and practitioners, particularly those working within ombudsman offices.
The book is available from Edward Elgar Publishing.
