IOI – Connecting Public Service
Ombudsmen Globally

The 13th World Conference of the International Ombudsman Institute will be hosted by the National Ombudsman of the Netherlands and held in The Hague, between 13 and 17 May 2024. 
The Australasian Pacific Ombudsman Region (APOR) held a conference on 31 October 2023 and its 35th annual Members’ meeting on 1 November 2023 in Melbourne Australia. The conference, themed "Through The Ombudsman Looking Glass: Now And Into The Future" was hosted by Victorian Ombudsman Deborah Glass OBE as Regional President.
For the 13th IOI World Conference the National Ombudsman of the Netherlands proposed five themes to be discussed during the event. As the institution wanted to learn the views of other regions on the themes, they started online meetings with the IOI regional boards where the latter were invited to share their thoughts and ideas on the themes as viewed from their perspective.
