IOI Annual Reports
The IOI publishes its Annual Report every year, to inform about membership matters as well as about IOI projects in the past and in the future. The Report is released in the three official languages of the IOI (English, French, Spanish).
The IOI provides a directory that includes the key data of all IOI member institutions. In addition to the download in this publications section an online directory is also available when accessing the regional or country information on this website.
In order to commemorate the 40th anniversary of its foundation in 1978, the IOI decided to embark on a publication project and commissioned Professor Richard Carver, Senior Lecturer in Human Rights and Governance at Oxford Brooks University, with the task of writing a “History of the IOI”. Print copies of Richard Carver's book on “A Mission to Justice – The International Ombudsman Institute 1978-2018” can be purchased from the IOI.
