The International Peace Institute, the Permanent Mission of Finland to the United Nations, and the Permanent Mission of the Republic of Indonesia to the United Nations are holding a half-day policy forum on Wednesday, January 18th, on “Settling International Disputes: Lessons from the Past, Challenges for the Future.”
This two-panel event marks the 90th anniversary of the historic settlement of the Åland Islands question. Reflecting on this example of successful mediation between Finland and Sweden by the League of Nations, and the enduring autonomy, demilitarization, and protection of cultural rights that followed for the Åland Islands, this event addresses the prospects for settling ethno-territorial conflicts today.
