International perspectives in a multilevel framework – the case of the Åland Islands”, funded by the KONE foundation. He holds a master’s degree in “Peace, Mediation and Conflict Research” from the University of Tampere, Finland.

In his project work he is studying Finnish and Ålandic parliamentary discussions with regard to Åland’s status as a demilitarised and neutralised area during the period from 1989 to 1995 which saw both the end of the Cold War and Finland’s accession to the European Union.
