Om seminariet (engelska):

The Legacy of the Åland Islands Solution – seminar

The Ministry for Foreign Affairs of Finland, together with the Government of the Åland Islands and the Finnish and Swedish Embassies in The Hague have a great pleasure to invite you to celebrate the centennial jubilee of the autonomous Åland Islands and take part in the celebratory seminar organized in its honour. In light of the special nature of the Åland Solution in international law, the Peace Palace offers a symbolic and memorable setting for the seminar.

The Åland solution provided answers to the issue of political decision-making and power sharing, the issue of security on Åland and the issue of protection of the identity, culture and language of the Swedish-speaking islands. The decisions by the League of Nations and the agreements of 1921 resolved the international aspects of the conflict and Finland implemented the agreed guarantees in its national legislation.

The Convention on the Non-fortification and Neutralisation of the Åland Islands was signed in 1921 by the British Empire, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Italy, Latvia, Poland and Sweden
