More about the European Ombudsman
The European Ombudsman is an independent and impartial body that holds the EU’s institutions and agencies to account, and promotes good administration. The Ombudsman helps people, businesses and organisations facing problems with the EU’s administration by investigating complaints about maladministration by EU institutions and bodies, but also by proactively looking into broader systemic issues. For people with disabilities maladministration may include the inaccessibility of websites of EU’s institutions, the inaccessibility of EU buildings, the lack of reasonable accommodation of candidates to jobs in the EU institutions and the lack of inclusion of children with disabilities in European schools.
