The Åland Peace Institute was founded in 1992, and is thus celebrating its 25th anniversary this year. This will be celebrated with a symposium on October 24th. At the same time, the acievements of former Chair of the Board of Directors, Ms Barbro Sundback, will be highlighted.

The symposium will be held at Alandica between 10 am and 4.30 pm. Speakers are Jan Sundberg, Professor of Political Science at the University of Helsinki, Christian Pleijel, Director Sustainable Urban Systems at KTH in Stockholm, and Secretary General of the European Small Islands Federation, Hedda B. Langemyr, former Director of the Norwegian Peace Council and Barbro Sundback, the former chairperson of the Institute.

At its anniversary the Institute wants to look forward rather than backwards, and has chosen the theme "Åland - a future perspective". The symposium, that will be held in Swedish, will highlight Åland today and in the future from a global, local, identity and security policy perspective.

To the symposium, the Institute has invited people who have contributed specifically to the work of the Peace Institute over the years, for example as a board member or an employee. There is also a limited number of open seats to sign up for no later than 19.10, on this link.
