About the Åland Islands Peace Institute
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.
