It discusses the history of ombudswork, different patterns in the origin, development, mandate and status of the different types of ombudsman offices; the functions of ombudswork in theory and practice; and characteristics essential to this kind of work. The Digest ends with details of 16 existing ombudsmen/commissioners for children and a select bibliography on the topic.
