Helsinki Prosessi / Brookings Institutions Seminar; experiences from Helsinki Process in implementing the post-2015 agenda


Helsinki Process on Globalisation and Democracy was launched in 2002 as a joint initiative by the governments of Finland and Tanzania. Its wider phase was discontinued in 2008, when the final report of the process was submitted to the UN Secretary General. Later on the focus has been on some separate global issues, such as the international investment regime as a most recent exercise. As a follow up to the Helsinki Process a joint seminar will be organized with the Brookings Institutions in March-April in Washington D.C. The objective will be to examine, identify and propose, how the Helsinki Process approaches and experiences may facilitate the future implementation of the emerging post-2015 agenda for sustainable development. The three issues especially linking Helsinki Process to the new sustainable development agenda are mobilizing political will, multi-stakeholder approach and mobilizing financial resources.
