This yearbook is devoted to ombudsman issues. The public sector ombudsman is now found at all levels of government in many countries around the world, both in established and consolidating democracies. The ombudsman is an independent office, traditionally appointed by the legislative branch, to investigate poor administration of government. More recently, some ombudsman offices have been given human rights protection responsibilities.

Compiled and edited by the International Ombudsman Institute, the organization composed of over 130 ombudsman members located worldwide, it should be of interest to lawyers, scholars, ombudsman office personnel and government entities wherever ombudsman offices are located or contemplated.;The International Ombudsman Institute is a non-profit organization whose objects include promotion of the concept of ombudsmanship, encouragement and support of research in the ombudsman field, development of educational programmes associated with ombudmanship, the organization of international ombudsmanship conferences, and provision of a resource centre for storage and dissemination of information about the ombudsman institution.
