Open Event: The Danish Municipal Elections in a Global Mirror

Why are the Danish ballot boxes not transparent? Why do the losing parties party? And can Denmark learn from Nepal when it comes to including more women in local politics?

During the Danish Municipal Elections, Danish Institute for Parties and Democracy (DIPD) sends 75 young, local politicians from as diverse countries as Bhutan, Colombia, Egypt, Palestine, Tanzania and Myanmar to a number of Danish municipalities as ‘election observers’. They will follow the final election campaign, the election itself and the subsequent negotiations on mayor and committee posts.

DIPD and the Danish parliamentary parties invites you for an open event at Johan Borups Højskole, Frederiksholms Kanal 24
Thursday November 23, from 6-9PM

We will focus on Danish local democracy in a global perspective as well as local politics in the world, when the youth politicians reflect on local democracy in Denmark and in their home countries.

The event is free of charge, to register please send an e-mail to
