For the past three years the Åland Islands Peace Institute has been one of eight institutions in six countries, (Finland, Germany, Estonia, Sweden, Slovenia and Austria) that has contributed to the multidisciplinary research project “European Language Diversity for All” (ELDIA). During these three years a team of experts and researchers in applied linguistics, sociolinguistics, law, social science and statistics has collaborated to gain a better understanding of the political and socio-economic situations of 14 language minorities in eight countries, all of which belong to the Finno-Ugric language family. Among these languages are autochthonous and migrant languages, more vital and threatened languages as well as standardized languages and languages standardized to a limited extent only.
