Immigration Dialogues, a series of discussions coordinated by the Ministry of the Interior, brought nearly 700 people together to talk about immigration. The discussions held in the autumn of 2022 aimed to provide people from different backgrounds with an opportunity to present their ideas and increase understanding of immigration. The final report was published on 8 March.
Since April 2020, people have met each other in the Lockdown Dialogues organised in the midst of the coronavirus crisis. The discussion series coordinated by the dialogue Academy, the Timeout Foundation, the Ministry of Justice, Sitra and the Ministry of Finance consisted of 232 dialogues, nine discussion days in different parts of Finland and the world. More than 1,600 people from different age groups and professions participated in the discussions. The Lockdown Dialogues were organised by nearly 100 actors from all corners of society: NGOs, municipalities, ministries, religious communities, companies and individual citizens.
A wide range of different discussion organisers will be invited to participate in the national dialogues, and we would like you to join us.
The Democracy Defence Dialogues were organised as a response to the concern about the state of democracy raised by Russian aggression on Ukraine. The unscrupulous attack against Ukraine made many aware that democracy is not self-evident. It must be supported on a daily basis and continuously renewed. All citizens are needed for this work.
