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

KV17 – Municipal elections in Denmark 2017

KV17 is the Danish acronym for Muncipal Elections 2017. On Tuesday 21 November 2017, the Danes are invited to participate in the election of 98 muncipal and 5 regional councils. This is an exercise that takes place every four years on the third Tuesday of November, and it is an important dimension of the Danish democracy. This is a good opportunity for inspiration and learning for our partners around the world and therefore DIPD is hosting a seminar from 18 November to 24 November. On this page, we will post relevant information on the seminar.

For more information on the DIPD KV17 seminar please contact coordinator Jette Lykke at or +45 23 33 55 59.
