Whose History?

There is a need for a more diverse historical narrative in Finland. The status of minorities should be addressed also in official circumstances, even if it cannot be currently painted in an honourable or just light.

As the world is becoming ever more globalized, it is even less reasonable to present Finland as historiographically separate from the rest of the world.
