Abstract

The impact of postglacial land uplift on the geographical extent of the demilitarized zone of the autonomous Åland Islands is discussed. Ambiguities and inconsistencies in the Åland Convention, on the order of nautical miles, are revealed; they are due not only to the land uplift itself, but also to unclear definitions of coordinates. Further complications are caused by disagreements between the autonomy boundary and the demilitarization boundary. Suggestions for solving the problems are given, including minor amendments and clarifications of the Åland Convention, and also a minor amendment of the Autonomy Constitution of Åland.
