To celebrate the International Women’s day, the Ministry for Foreign Affairs of Finland invites you to join the discussion “No Democracy without Gender Equality?”

Gender equality is one of the fundamental elements of democracy, and democracy support is an effective vehicle to drive gender equality in societies. How can we best utilize the link to promote both democracy and gender equality?

The seminar provides the latest analysis from International IDEA on current trends and challenges to democracy, looking especially into the topic of gender equality. Canada and Finland – as the 2022 Chair and Vice-Chair of International IDEA – will share their approaches to supporting democracy and gender equality. We will also hear experiences from two democracy support practitioners, Demo Finland and the Rule of Law Centre.
