International projects of cooperation

Op deze pagina


    The National Ombudsman is frequently invited to help other countries establish a similar institution. Projects are intended to strengthen the partner organization through the exchange of knowledge and experience.

    Each project is unique: there are no ‘ready-made’ training modules or programmes. The participants work together as equals, exploring the relevant topics and seeking solutions in keeping with the specific economic, cultural, political and geographical context. The National Ombudsman shares success stories as well as lessons learned from past projects. The process benefits both parties.
