Estonia’s two-year term as a non-permanent elected member of the UN Security Council has just ended. It was a difficult time. This small country, with only 1.3 million inhabitants, was at the centre of crisis diplomacy related to the COVID-19 pandemic. It also had to deal with many other global security challenges, including Russia’s aggressive policy.
What Estonia’s successes were and what they did not, will be discussed by participants in the debate: Estonia & the EU in the United Nations. Estonia on the Security Council.
