In 2020, the Estonian Foreign Policy Institute (EFPI) of the International Centre for Defence and Security (ICDS) engaged with several new priorities of Estonia’s foreign policy.
We launched new projects on the Arctic region, reflecting Estonia’s aspiration to become an observer state of the Arctic Council; the role of small states in the UN Security Council, where Estonia is an elected member in 2020-2021; and the impact of Covid-19.
Furthermore, EFPI was active and visible in analysing the growing influence of China on Estonia, Europe and global affairs.
We continued to follow closely developments in Russia’s foreign policy, transatlantic relations, the EU and Nordic-Baltic region.
