A proposal for a Global Ombudsman Service

  • Justin Malbon

Abstract

In this article Professor Justin Malbon (Monash Law School, University of Monash, Australia) proposes the establishment of a Global Industries Ombudsman Service (GIOS) to improve access to justice for those adversely affected by a (global) corporation’s production or investment activities. The proposed GIOS would be roughly modelled on the industry funded consumer complaints ombudsman services that have successfully operated in many jurisdictions for decades. Under the GIOS the parties entitled to lodge a complaint would be those alleging harm being caused by a corporation’s production or investment activities, and not consumers.
