This work gives a comprehensive analysis of the Aland Islands international legal status as a territory under Finnish sovereignty yet demilitarized and autonomous, with a Swedish character. The legal status of this autonomy is examined, as are military issues, and the Islands' relationship with the EU. The solution achieved for Aland may provide a valuable model of autonomy, and this collection of essays should be of interest and use to students, professionals, and anyone concerned with territorial autonomy as a possible means of enhancing political rights of minorities.
