On May 21-25 the Åland Islands Peace Institute is happy to gather on Åland representatives from partner organizations in all countries where the ÅIPI has been co-operating on gender equality and empowerment since the foundation in 1992. Participants come from Lithuania, Latvia, Russia (Karelia and the Kaliningrad region), Belarus and Azerbaijan. All the partner organisations have in cooperation with the Peace Institute adopted the so called girl and boy group method that aims to strenghten individuals’ selfesteem and to promote their abilities to question prevailing gender norms, to solve conflicts peacefully and to take an active part in society.
