101. Swedish In Finland
Swedish daycare. Swedish-speaking schools are the foundation for the Swedish language and culture in Finland. The central education
Finland is a country with two main languages, Finnish and Swedish. Finnish is the majority language, while Swedish is nowadays spoken by a small minority. With regard to Swedish in Finland, the situation is not unlike that of German in Alsace or Danish in Germany, where the minority language of an EU member state is spoken as a majority language in a neighbouring member state.
The Swedish-speaking population in Finland is mainly descended from peasants and fishermen who settled on the western and southern coasts and islands some time between the beginning of this millennium and 1250 A.D. Finland belonged to Sweden until 1809, when it became part of the Russian empire as an autonomous Grand Duchy. In the 1917 turmoil following the collapse of the Russian empire, Finland declared itself independent. After being a part of Sweden for 650 years, Swedish remained the language of administration throughout the first half of the 19th century. It was not until 1863 that Finnish was recognized as an official language in Finland. For some time, Russian was also used, and the administration was in fact multilingual. After independence, Finnish very soon became the dominant language.

Swedish in Finland
Written for Virtual Finland by Henrik Ekberg, Ph.D. (Pol.Sc.) There are not many countries in Europe which are, or have ever been, linguistically homogeneous, the main exceptions being Iceland and Portugal; most countries have one or more linguistic minorities. The total number of linguistic minorities in the European Union alone comes to about fifty. Many countries have also experienced some kind of conflict over languages. Only very rarely have language issues been resolved in a way which both the majority and the minority find satisfactory. Photo: Hannu Vallas

Our contacts

Cultural cooperation Step by step the Russian-Swedish center has also become a cultural center: a meeting place for students, teachers and scholars from Russia and Sweden. This originated in 1997 when a teacher from Sweden, Christina Eidem started to organize seminars about democracy. This tradition has since continued with for example seminars on human rights related topics, organized by M.Tisell and A.Schlaug, both of them Swedish teachers working at the center. To the seminars are invited scholars, journalists, writers and others. At the center there are many opportunities for Russian and Swedes to meet in order to discuss topics of mutual interest. The Russian-Swedish center stands in close contact with the center for Russian language studies, helping Swedish students that come to study Russian language to find their way around the university/scientific world of Moscow. The Swedish students are among other things assisted in finding interesting courses, and through interaction with the students at the center the Russian as well as the Swedish students are given the opportunity to practice their language skills. The Russian-Swedish center offers students the possibility to become specialist within the area of Swedish history, politics, culture and language.
