The Nordic Self-Governing Areas in a Peace Perspective: The Faroe Islands, Greenland and the Åland Islands
Nordic Council of Ministers, Nordic Council of Ministers Secretariat2015 (English)Other (Other (popular science, discussion, etc.))
The Nordic Region has enjoyed two centuries of peaceful co-existence that are worth highlighting and learning from. As a result, the Nordic autonomous regions have attracted considerable attention in recent years. There is significant international interest in their experiences, including their experience of territorial autonomy. In a world that appears increasingly troubling, the autonomy of the Faroe Islands, Greenland, and Åland is worth studying from the perspective of conflict resolution. It seems important to examine the marked development that these autonomous regions have undergone and the success they have had in finding solutions to the conflicts that have arisen – not just from a Nordic perspective, but also from a wider international point of view.
The conclusions of a comparative study of the autonomous regions’ legal, economic, and security policy developments are presented here.
