IOI | 12th World Conference successfully hosted by the Irish Ombudsman

The office of the Ombudsman of Ireland successfully hosted the 12th World Conference of the International Ombudsman Institute (IOI) from 26 – 27 May 2021. Unfortunately, due the Covid-19 pandemic conference delegates were not able to come together and meet in Dublin in person as originally planned. However, the Irish host delivered a professional online event, which made sure that participants enjoyed the full conference experience with remarkable speakers, interesting workshops and a wide possibility for exchange and shared learning.

The conference theme “Giving Voice to the Voiceless” proved to be even more important given the impact of the pandemic on those who were already disadvantaged. “The pandemic has not respected equality of opportunity. With this conference, the IOI encourages colleagues worldwide to give voice to the voiceless and to be vigilant on behalf of all citizens, but especially those, who belong to so-called vulnerable groups,” stressed Peter Tyndall, outgoing IOI President and conference host, in his opening remarks.
