Around 70 people work at the Parliamentary Ombudsman’s office, around 40 of which are legal advisers. The organisation comprises three departments that consider complaint cases from persons who believe they have suffered an injustice on the part of the public administration, as well as an investigation department that raise matters on its own initiative. In addition, the Parliamentary Ombudsman works under a preventive mandate from the UN to prevent torture and inhuman treatment in places where people are deprived of their liberty.

The Parliamentary Ombudsman’s strategy 2015–2019

The goal of the Parliamentary Ombudsman’s strategy plan is that the Ombudsman shall work to ensure that individuals do not suffer injustice at the hands of the public administration. Our vision is to be a well-known and clear voice against injustice, and some of our values can be summed up in the key words credible, objective and independent, and respect for the individual.
