The Autonomy Act lists the areas where the Åland Parliament has the right to pass legislation. The most important of these are:

  • education, culture and the preservation of ancient monuments
  • health and medical care, the environment
  • promotion of industry
  • internal transports
  • local government
  • policing
  • postal communications
  • radio and television

In these areas Åland functions practically like an independent state with its own laws and administration.
