The term "Ombudsman" comes from Swedish word "Omboodz-man" meaning "a grievance man or person", which the Oxford Dictionary refers to as the "people's defender".
In most democratic countries, there are Ombudsman institutions that are responsible organizations that make the government accountable to the people. Broadly these institutions function to prevent the misuse or abuse of the vast executive power of government by undertaking impartial investigations into governmental activities against its citizens.
