Chydenius’ works introduced to Ambassadors

The Anders Chydenius Foundation met three Finnish ambassadors, 22 August 2011, and introduced them a project to publish a scientific edition of Anders Chydenius’ collected works during the years 2006-2013. The ambassadors were met by chairman Gustav Björkstrand, editor-in-chief Maren Jonasson and researcher Pertti Hyttinen.

The complete works will be published in 10 volumes in their original language Swedish, and translated into Finnish. This will help research on Chydenius especially in Finland and Sweden.

In addition, the principal works of Chydenius and a comprehensive biography will be published in English. The Foundation wishes that this English version will raise awareness of Chydenius writings internationally, especially in the United Kingdom and in the United States.

Wide network of collaboration

Kokkola University Consortium Chydenius will be working in collaboration with Chydenius-instituutin kannatusyhdistys [its voluntary support organisation] and Anders Chydenius Foundation.

Half of the funding will come from the Finnish Ministry of Education. Other funders are the city of Kokkola, The Bank of Finland, Riksbankens Jubileumsfond (Sweden), Kungliga Vitterhetsakademien (Sweden), different foundations and private enterprises. President of the editing board is bishop emeritus, former rector of Åbo Akademi Gustav Björkstrand , and the members are editor-in-chief Henrik Knif (Svenska Litteratursällskapet), professor Jari Ojala (University of Jyväskylä), professor emeritus Juha Manninen (University of Oulu) ja professor Bo Lindberg (University of Gothenburg).
