Symposium 2018

The symposium ‘Collective Security, a Rules-Based International Order and the Åland Islands’ will be held in Mariehamn on 4 and 5 October. Discussions will concern collective security and a contractual world order in relation to Åland's demilitarisation and neutralisation. The symposium is based on research results from a three-year research project on demilitarisation and neutralisation, (2015-2017). The results of the project have been collected in the book ‘Demilitarisation and International Law in Context: The Åland Islands’. The symposium will be held in English for invited researchers and practitioners. After the symposium, a summary of selected highlights and reflections will be presented in Swedish for everyone interested. This will be at a seminar open to the public on 5 October from 13:30 to 15:00 at Alandica's Auditorium.
