Baltic Studies

Baltic Studies focuses on the study of Estonia's home region from the perspective of area studies and the promotion of knowledge about this region at the international level. The strand can be divided into two main thematic areas: historical developments and contemporary developments. The first focuses on the processes of how the Baltic States grew out of the Russian Empire in search of their place in the wider Baltic Sea region. The second strand analyses the political and social developments of the period, with a focus on Estonia. Contemporary developments are also examined in the context of the wider Baltic Sea region.
