The Greek Ombudsman

The Greek Ombudsman’s guiding principle and drive as a mediator is its commitment to the win-win approach, i.e. visualising solutions from which both the citizens and the administration can benefit. The Independent Authority stands by the citizen affected by the financial  crisis; it investigates problems caused by legislation or administrative acts or omissions and undertakes targeted initiatives, building on the expertise it has developed so far and the enhanced competences it enjoys. In addition, the Ombudsman acts as guardian of the people’s rights in both the public and private sectors, with a special emphasis on monitoring and promoting the implementation of the principle of equal treatment, the rights of the child and the rights of vulnerable groups.
