|Series Title||Annual Report|
The European Ombudsman published in August 2006 the annual report covering the activities of his office for the year 2005.
The annual report of 2005 signals the tenth anniversary of the institution of the European Ombudsman.
The year 2005 was a challenging year for the European Union, the Treaty establishing a Constitution for Europe (2004) was dismissed, as citizens in France and the Netherlands voted not to ratify the Constitution for Europe. Also, voter turnout at European elections continued to decline, and the Union was struggling to address the perception that it is a remote bureaucracy built by a political elite.
