Are you interested in issues of autonomy, minorities, peace and conflict, and the possibility to combine research and practical societal engagement?

If yes, then this first Aland Peace Fellowship is for you.

The Åland Islands Peace Institute is looking for applications from researchers – in their early career as well as established ones – in the fields of law, peace research, political science, international affairs or related disciplines.

The Åland Islands Peace Institute was founded in 1992. It is an independent foundation situated in Mariehamn (Åland).

At the Institute they work both practically and with research on peace and conflict issues in a broadly defined manner and from the vantage point of the special status that Åland enjoys under international law.

A Peace Fellowship comprises the following benefits:

  • A return ticket (economy) from your place of residence to Mariehamn
  • A monthly stipend of 1300 euro
  • Working space and access to small but specialized library
  • Accommodation in Mariehamn in a single room apartment or guesthouse, alternatively assistance in finding appropriate accommodation
  • The possibility to present your work at a public seminar
  • The possibility to conduct research accessing key sources on the Åland Islands
  • The possibility to publish your work as part of online open-access report series “Report from the Åland Islands Peace Institute” or the Journal on Autonomy and Security Studies jass.ax which is now accessible through doaj.org
  • A collegial and generous atmosphere and the possibility to discuss your research and ideas with the Institute’s staff and networks
  • For early career researchers, the possibility to attend a coming E-course “Territorial Autonomy as a Tool for Diversity Management – Lessons from the Åland Example” free of registration fee

    Eligibility Criteria

  • Åland Islands Peace Institute welcomes applications from all parts of the world, in particular from regions with experiences of minorities, autonomy arrangements or debates, multilevel governance or conflict.

     Applicants from a minority or indigenous background and islands are especially encouraged to apply.

    Your application is to include:

  • A letter of motivation, including full contact details and explaining how a stay in the Åland Islands and the Peace Institute could contribute to your work (max 1.000 words),
  • A short outline (max 2.000 words) of the work you intend to undertake as a fellow at the Institute,
