16:23, 04 July 2017, 1002

AKIPRESS.COM - Seven prominent Tajik women politicians, including a member of parliament, representing each of the registered political parties in Tajikistan, took part in a study visit to Finland from May 29 to June 2, the OSCE reported. 

The visit, part of the OSCE Programme Office in Dushanbe’s programme to promote gender mainstreaming, was jointly organized by the Office, the Permanent Mission of Finland to the OSCE and the Foreign Ministry of Finland.

“Such study tours help women politicians to connect with their peers, to network, establish contacts and share experience and knowledge. We are happy that our continuous co-operation with the Tajik Parliament and Tajik political parties is very positive and productive,” said Tuula Yrjölä, Head of the OSCE Programme Office in Dushanbe, who accompanied the politicians. “This year the Tajik political parties drafted their second gender action plan, with a focus on gender budgeting, and we hope that this visit will help them to intensify the gender mainstreaming activities for reaching gender parity.”

In Helsinki the participants held several high-level meetings at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs where they discussed the priorities of Finland in the OSCE, Finland’s National Action Plan on Women, Peace and Security, women’s role in mediation, and the Nordic Women Mediators Network, as well as co-operation between Finland and Tajikistan.

Finland’s Ministry for Social Affairs and Health presented its policies relating to gender equality, equality in the labour market, and balancing of work, family and parenthood obligations, among other topics. Women's political networking and gender quotas were discussed at the Finnish Parliament with the Chair of the Network and with representatives of the Finnish Delegation to the OSCE Parliamentary Assembly. A visit to the University of Helsinki and its Department for Gender Studies along with a visit to a shelter for victims of domestic violence was also part of the programme.
