State, as a holder of people's power that transferred by them, is responsible to protect people from its own wrong actions especially when it is in a position to serve them. Every state has been taking some steps to make people satisfy with its services, to respect their rights and offer them a solution when they would like to complain. Classical institutions sometimes failed to give effective and fast solutions for people whose rights were damaged. It caused states to take alternative actions in order to offer easily accessible, effective and fast response institutions. This issue was not realized currently, but it has a long history from Romans to Ottomans, China to Islamic states. As it is most known, Swedish state structure is the first example that have “Ombudsman” institution to offer an alternative solution to its people. Globally following issues especially realization of human rights, need for protection of human rights and political changes caused states to think over this possibility. Finally, nearly half of the countries settled an ombudsman institution by the end of 90's. Although the institution is called in different titles and may have some different duties, there is a tendency in the countries to have this institution as an element of protection of human rights. As long as there is no standard way of thinking on and protecting the human rights, every state might have different framework for ombudsman institution. However, especially in Europe, there is an expectation to ensure standard way of thinking and protecting of human rights. In order to understand how European countries have similar or different ombudsman institutions, two countries' ombudsman institution was chosen for comparison. In this work, Hungarian and Turkish Ombudsman institutions were evaluated in frame of Venice Commission's ombudsman standards. Two institutions obviously have some similarities but significant differences.
