Short description NWP organisation
The Greek Ombudsman mediates between public administration and citizens in order to help citizens in exercising their rights effectively. Additionally, the Greek Ombudsman’s mission is:
  • To safeguard and promote children’s rights
  • To promote equal treatment and fight discrimination in the public sector based on race, ethnicity, religious or other conviction, disability, age or sexual orientation
  • To monitor and promote the application of equal opportunities and equal treatment of men and women:
  • In matters of employment both in the public and the private sector
  • In matters of access of men and women to goods and services of the public sector
The Greek Ombudsman mediates after citizens have contacted in writing the civil service with which they have a dispute. As a mediator, the Greek Ombudsman makes recommendations and submits proposals to the public administration. The independent Authority imposes no sanctions nor does it annul illegal actions taken by the public administration.
