Demo Finland

Political Parties of Finland for Democracy

Demo Finland is a co-operative organisation of all the eight Finnish parliamentary parties. It seeks to enhance democracy by facilitating  collaborative projects between Finnish political parties and political movements in new and developing democracies.

Demo Finland is not ideologically, religiously or politically tied to any particular movement.


Year 2016 is an important landmark in Zambian politics. General elections will be held on the 11th of August, and the citizens vote for president, parliamentarians, local councilors, municipal mayors and even in a referendum. The elections are a new opportunity for Zambian women, who are currently remarkably few in Zambian local politics.

Tunisia has been on the path towards democracy ever since the Jasmine revolution in 2011. Last autumn, the democratization process gained world-wide recognition, when the national dialogue quartet was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize. Several participants of the national dialogue process have also taken part in the activities of the Tunisian School of Politics, a programme run by Demo Finland, NIMD and CEMI.

Demo Finland's office in Helsinki has moved. Our new address is Siltasaarenkatu 4 (7th floor), 00530 Helsinki, Finland.

Zambia will vote for a new president, new parliament members and new local councilors in August. Many are wishing that women would take a visible role in the elections.
Tanzanian Women Crossparty Platform

In autumn 2006 women members of Tanzanian parliamentary parties decided that they want to act for equality and for the sake of impact, they want to do it in co-operation across party lines. Back then, some of the parties did not have a women’s wing and cross-party co-operation was unheard.

Anu Juvonen has been selected as Acting Executive Director of Demo Finland. Juvonen has extensive work experience in the development sector and previously worked for Demo Finland as Director of Programmes until September 2015.
