The Kastelholm talks of 2017 will highlight the centenary celebration of Finland, discussing the topic "With Finland as a neighbour - boundaries and boundlessness over the past century". The Kastelholm talks are recurring talks on peace issues, and are this year arranged for the third time. The Kastelholm talks will be held on 30 March 2017, the day of Åland’s demilitarisation. The panel consists of former Minister and High Commissioner Astrid Thors from Finland; former Minister Kristina Persson from Sweden; former Ambassador René Nyberg from Finland, and peace researcher and Professor Nils Petter Gleditsch from Norway.

The Kastelholm talks are held in Swedish and consist of two parts. First there is a panel discussion for some 100 invited guests in the castle of Kastelholm, where the panel will discuss the topic of the year with a moderator. Secondly, a roundtable discussion will be held in the nearby restaurant Smakbyn, that is open to the public. The registration opens on February 27 and closes on March 10. Please register here​.
