In May 2022, Finland announced its intention to apply for NATO membership. Assuming Finland becomes a NATO member, what does that mean for Åland? Åland is an autonomous and demilitarised region of Finland (and has been since 1856 in the aftermath of the Crimean War). Can Finland meet both its NATO obligations and the obligation to keep Åland demilitarised, or will either have to be adapted? It seems the question has been raised, but I can't find an article outlining possible scenarios.
