The University of KwaZulu-Natal


The African Ombudsman Research Centre (AORC), a research and training arm of the African Ombudsman and Mediators’ Association (AOMA)

Cordially invite you to a facilitated discussion


Ombudsman Day is 10th October. In commemoration of Ombudsman Month and to raise awareness of the Ombudsman institution, AORC is hosting a two-hour facilitated discussion around the threats facing the Ombudsman institution.

This facilitated discussion is an excellent opportunity to discuss the threats and challenges facing the Ombudsman institution in Africa, how these threats and challenges are overcome and also to unpack the strategy of the International Ombudsman Institute (IOI) for Ombudsman under threat.

This facilitated discussion would enhance the capacity of Ombudsman throughout the continent in their tasks and contribute to the development of skilled resources within the Ombudsman institutions to the benefit of each participating country and Africa as a whole.
