Board meeting of Asian Ombudsman Association held in Kazan

From 9 to 12 August, a board meeting of the Asian Ombudsman Association took place in the Republic of Tatarstan. President of the Republic Rustam Minnikhanov and local Commissioner for Human Rights Saria Saburskaya hosted High Commissioner for Human Rights in the Russian Federation Tatiana Moskalkova, President of the Asian Ombudsman Association Salman Faruqui and ombudsmen from the Republic of Azerbaijan, Hong Kong, the Islamic Republic of Iran, the People’s Republic of China, Japan, Malaysia, Indonesia and other countries in the cities of Kazan and Bolgar.

One of the major events was a round table devoted to the topic ‘Information Technology and Human Rights: the Experience of the Republic of Tatarstan’. Saria Saburskaya told about the successful work of the state information system ‘The People’s Control’ at this meeting. This is an electronic system of communication between citizens and local self-government bodies. And, among other responsible authorities, the Commissioner of the republic is also responsible for controlling the complaints handling.

On the second day, the ombudsmen discussed a very important issue for Asia and the Republic of Tatarstan, namely the interreligious and interethnic interaction. The human rights commissioners described how representatives of different world religions cooperate in their countries, and how, in their views, interreligious relations could be harmonised.

It was the first time in history when the Russian Federation hosted the meeting of ombudsmen of Asia. Kazan was chosen as a venue during the events held by the Association and the International Ombudsman Institute last year in March in Japan and attended by Saria Saburskaya as the only Russian Federation representative being a member of the Asian Ombudsman Association and a member of the Board of Directors since November 2014.
