The Kastelholm Talks are recurring talks on the topic of peace, under the patronage of former President of Finland, Tarja Halonen. The talks are always held in association with Åland’s Demilitarization Day, the 30th March.
Through the Kastelholm Talks, the Åland Islands Peace Institute seeks to highlight a peace perspective by identifying and discussing solutions and opportunities for peaceful coexistence. The Kastelholm Talks aims to contribute to public education and knowledge development by being a forum for dialogue, rather than debate.
The Kastelholm Talks on Peace will be held on 30th of March 2022
with the theme:
“Breakthrough or Breakdown?
About Building Trust and Enhancing Disarment Today”
For 2022 we plan to be back at the medieval castle of Kastelholm for the high profile panel discussion. Afterwards, we will deepen and develop the discussions at a roundtable at Alandica in Mariehamn. For inspiration, we will release new episodes in the podcast series “Before the Kastelholm Talks 2022” with interesting voices and perspectives on this year’s theme.
More information on the Kastelholm Talks 2022 will be announced soon.
