Journal of Autonomy and Security Studies

About JASS

The Journal of Autonomy and Security Studies (JASS) is a peer-reviewed, open access e-journal published by the Åland Islands Peace Institute (ÅIPI). The journal addresses its overarching theme of peace and security from the perspectives of autonomy, demilitarization, and minority protection.

Each issue of JASS will include scholarly articles that in some way deal with the subjects mentioned above. Before being accepted, all articles have been subject to a double-blind peer-review process. JASS issues may also include other types of material such as project notes, book reviews, and information on pending conferences. JASS is published twice a year – in May and in November.

The editorial board invites proposals on articles, thematic issues, and other suggestions to make JASS a relevant and accessible scholarly journal in its field. It is appreciated if manuscripts sent to us have undergone language editing. For more details, see Submissions. 


About ÅIPI

The Åland Islands Peace Institute (ÅIPI) is an institute for research and information on peace and conflict issues in a broadly defined sense, but with a particular emphasis on autonomy, minority issues, demilitarisation, and conflict management. The Åland Island’s special status under international law is a natural point of reference in this respect. The Institute also provides education, seminars, and special studies for national and international agencies. Conferences and seminars are regularly organised on the Åland Islands by the Institute.

The Åland Islands Peace Institute is an independent charitable foundation, established in 1992 and based in Mariehamn, Åland, Finland. The institute takes part in several national and international networks of organisations working on issues related to its core areas. Also, the Institute has consultative status in the UN Economic and Social Council, ECOSOC.
