Partnerships and networks

Domestically 

Demo Finland is an organisation by parties for parties and by politicians for politicians. Its most important resource is the knowledge and experience of Finnish political party actors on the practices of multi-party democracy. Demo Finland’s member parties include the Centre Party, the Christian Democrats, the Finns Party, the Green League, the Left Alliance, Movement Now, the National Coalition Party, the Social Democratic Party of Finland, and the Swedish People’s Party of Finland. 

Demo Finland is a member of the Development Policy Committee, the Finnish National Commission on Sustainable Development, 1325 Network Finland, and the Finnish OneWorld Association. Demo Finland’s Executive Director is also a member of the Human Rights Delegation of the Human Rights Centre and in the advisory board of University of Vaasa’s InnoLab platform.

Internationally 

Demo Finland is a founding member of the Brussels-based European democracy support network European Partnership for Democracy (EPD) and cooperates closely with the other members of EPD and participates in the joint advocacy work of EPD at EU level. 

Demo Finland also participates in the activities of the global Political Party Peer Network that consists of democracy support actors, whose aim is to share good practices, develop ways of measuring the effectiveness of democracy support to political parties, and promote international awareness of democracy support of political parties. Demo Finland is one of the multi-party actors who founded the Global Partnership for Multiparty Democracy in 2016. On a Nordic level, Demo Finland meets annually with democracy support actors from Norwegian, Swedish, and Danish political parties to share practices, experiences, and knowledge. Demo Finland is also a member of the civil society pillar of the Community of Democracies.
