The Åland Islands Peace Institute can receive research fellows who are active within the institute’s research area for a period of severals weeks to several months. The design of a successful residency generally requires good planning in advance.
The aim of research fellowship activities is partly to establish new and maintain existing contacts with research institutions, civil society organisations, and others, thereby enriching the material for our report series and the JASS publication; and it is partly to offer researchers the opportunity to become acquainted with Åland and the Åland Example thus making new contacts here.
The Åland Islands Peace Institute can offer research fellows a stimulating work environment, contacts, and access to our library. The Peace Institute both collaborates with established researchers who visit Åland and participate in specific projects and seminars, as well as with young researchers who will be offered the opportunity to spend several weeks or months on Åland researching and writing. The Peace Institute, through the report series “Report from the Åland Islands Peace Institute” and the digital journal JASS, highlight young researchers and qualitative research within the institute’s areas of interest.
If you are active within the Peace Institute’s research area and are interested in being a research fellow at the Åland Islands Peace Institute, you are welcomed to contact us with your inquiries. Research fellows from or active in other autonomies or conflict-affected areas are especially welcomed.
The opportunity to receive guest researchers is relatively limited, therefore the researchers should preferably have a PhD, or at least a master’s degree, in order to be able to conduct independent research as well as funding from their own institutions.
In order to consider you for a position, we need to receive information about your research plan, your areas of interest, any previous research, and any institutional affiliations.
Attach your CV and feel free to tell us during which period and for how long you would like to visit us.
We have limited resources in terms of space and funding, which is why visits from visiting researchers must be planned well in advance and why research that can be done in collaboration with other institutions and with shared oversight and funding is prioritised.
The Peace Institute announces research fellowships when the financial and practical conditions allow. They are announced here on our website and in our newsletter – subscribe now so you do not miss the next opportunity!
Inquiries should be sent to the Åland Islands Peace Institute’s director Sia Spiliopoulou Åkermark.
