Committees and boards

Decision-making chart: Comittees and Boards

The agendas and decisions of committee meetings are available to the public. The meetings, however, are closed to the general public. Finnish is the main working language, so many documents from the boards and committees are in Finnish only. As Finnish and Swedish are the official languages of Finland, legislation and decisions are only legally binding in these two languages.
