My name is Aliye Uysal and I am an Åland Islands Peace Institute’s research intern from September to December 2022. Currently, I am a Master’s student in Peace, Mediation and Conflict Research at Åbo Akademi. In my studies I am interested in collective memory, identity and their relation to peace.
During my internship I will participate in the e-course “Territorial Autonomy as a Tool for Diversity Management: Lessons from the Åland Example” and assist on various research-related tasks along with some tasks relating to the 30th anniversary of the institute. I am looking forward to learn more about the work here, at the Peace Institute.
