In this special Centre for Comparative Constitutional Studies (CCCS) seminar, the 10th and current Commonwealth Ombudsman, Mr Michael Manthorpe will engage in a conversation with Associate Professor Kristen Rundle. The conversation will address three broad themes: From History to the Present, Environment and Relationships. It will invite discussion of such questions as how the purpose of the office of the Ombudsman has developed over time, how changes in the delivery of government services have affected the role of the Ombudsman, and the capacity of the office of the Ombudsman to adapt to changes in its relationships with citizens, media and entities of government.
