The Finnish Parliamentary Glossary

The Finnish Parliamentary Glossary includes key concepts related to Parliament, its work and organization. Additionally, concepts related to parliamentary elections, regulations, state budget and EU affairs have been included when deemed important from Parliament's point of view. The Parliamentary Glossary includes approx. 600 concepts, most of which have been defined or explained. The terms are available in Finnish, Swedish, Sami, English, German, Spanish, Estonian, French, and Russian. The definitions and explanations are given in Finnish, Swedish and English; for the other languages, the equivalents of the Finnish terms are provided.

The Glossary has been prepared jointly by Parliament and the Government Terminology Service of the Prime Minister’s Office. It will also be published in printed format and included in the Finnish Government Termbank "Valter".
