The Åland Peace Institute was founded in 1992, and is thus celebrating its 25th anniversary this year. This was celebrated with a symposium on October 24th. At the same time, the acievements of former Chair of the Board of Directors, Ms Barbro Sundback, were highlighted.

The symposium was held at Alandica in Mariehamn. Speakers were Jan Sundberg, Professor of Political Science at the University of Helsinki, Christian Pleijel, Director Sustainable Urban Systems at KTH in Stockholm, and Secretary General of the European Small Islands Federation, Hedda B. Langemyr, former Director of the Norwegian Peace Council and Barbro Sundback, the former chairperson of the Institute.

At its anniversary the Institute wants to look forward rather than backwards, and has chosen the theme "Åland - a future perspective". The symposium, that was held in Swedish, highlighted Åland today and in the future from a global, local, identity and security policy perspective.
