International relations

Since the inauguration of the Danish Parliamentary Ombudsman’s office in 1955, the Ombudsmen and their staff have shared the philosophy and ideas behind the ombudsman concept with the rest of the world.

Today, there are ombudsman institutions of various types in many countries, and a number of international networks for ombudsmen have been established.
