Do citizens feel they can shape EU decisions? What makes a successful participatory democracy tool? How can public administrations, ombudsmen and others better involve citizens in decision-making?

On the eve of the European elections, European Ombudsman Emily O’Reilly invites you to the annual European Network of Ombudsmen conference, which will discuss measures to improve participatory democracy in the EU.

The keynote address will be given by Michel Barnier, who as former EU Commissioner, government minister, and lately the EU’s Chief Negotiator for Brexit, will give insights into which democratic challenges the EU is facing and how we can tackle this.

This annual event brings together around 100 national and regional ombudsmen from all over Europe, as well as MEPs, EU officials, organisations and other interested participants. The European Ombudsman chairs the European Network of Ombudsmen and coordinates cooperation among colleagues across Europe.

The European Ombudsman helps thousands of citizens each year through handling complaints and replying to requests for information. Inquiries opened by Ms O’Reilly concern issues ranging from language rights, to access to information, and transparency.

Venue: Room P3C050, European Parliament




Europese Ombudsman

Europese burgers, bedrijven of instellingen kunnen een klacht over wanbeheer van een Europese instelling indienen bij de Europese Ombudsman. Deze stelt naar aanleiding van de klacht een onderzoek in. De meeste klachten betreffen onnodige vertraging bij procedures, weigering om informatie te verstrekken, discriminatie en machtsmisbruik. De Ombudsman kan ook op eigen initiatief een onderzoek instellen.
