Hybrid threats - how do they affect the demilitarisation and neutralisation of Åland?

Speaker: Sia Spiliopoulou Åkermark

Hybrid threats have been defined as a mixture of conventional and unconventional methods (i.e. diplomatic, military, economic and technological) that can be used by state or non-state actors to achieve specific goals - often in a grey zone between war and peace. Hybrid threat is also a fashionable term that frequently occurs in reports, at new institutions and in various statements. Do these hybrid threats pose a threat to Åland's demilitarisation and neutralisation? Based on the results of many years of research in international law and demilitarisation, Sia Spiliopoulou Åkermark discusses how Åland should reason about and relate to the hybrid threat.

Does the EU suffer from a democratic deficit?

Speaker: Allan Rosas

The so-called democratic deficit of the EU has long been a subject of debate and brought with it various types of change within the Union. How should this discussion and criticism be understood? How has it influenced European co-operation?

Allan Rosas, with his long experience of legal issues in Finland and the EU, discusses the criticism of the democratic deficit and the EU's willingness and ability to meet it.

Lunch seminar Johansson

Lunch seminar on Wednesday 9 October 2019 at 11.30-12.30 in hotel Arkipelag's restaurant.

In a time when the cities grow and the digital development advances with giant steps, small societies get into trouble. In Sweden and Finland there are about five regions per country, in essence the five biggest university cities with their surroundings, that can cope, while the rest of the regions regress economically and demographically. An important reason for the increasing regional inequality in the Nordic countries and Europe is the ongoing brain drain, as well-educated people stay in or move to the big cities to a greater extent than people with a lower level of education. This is hastening the uneven regional development. Åland has so far been a brilliant exception, but the question is whether the long-term development is sustainable? In the light of such trends and from an economic perspective, what are the prospects for the Ålandic economy and for the Ålandic autonomy legislation?
