Welcome to the Peace Institute library & archive database

In the library and archive we hold material on peace and conflict issues, minorities, autonomy, security, gender, human rights, and the Åland Islands and their unique status. The library is situated at the Peace Institute building/offices at Hamngatan 4, Mariehamn. 

The library of the Peace institute is connected to the Åland library catalogue, bibliotek.ax, which allows you to search in that database, borrow at the Peace Institute with an Åland library card and return your loans to any library on Åland. The Peace Institute can not, however, issue library cards.

The part time librarian John Knight is at the Institute every Tuesday from 3.15 to 5 pm. At other times, John is available on the phone number,  +358 (0)457 342 0778, or by e-mail, This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..
