Research conducted at the Åland Islands Peace Institute concerns issues of minorities, autonomy arrangements, demilitarisation and security using Åland and its special status and competences as a starting point. Our research strives to produce and deepen knowledge and promote fact-based conversations and dialogue as part of a peaceful societal development.
Our research is conducted within projects, networks and partnerships with other knowledge-oriented institutions. The Åland Islands Peace Institute has initiated and participated in several projects where researchers from different disciplines, specialising in issues of self-government, minorities or security have worked together.
