Estonia's Experiences Prior to and Since Integration into the EU

On April 25, Her Excellency, Marina Kaljurand, Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of Estonia to the United States, visited the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and delivered a talk entitled "Estonia's Experiences Prior to and Since Integration into the EU." Ambassador Kaljurand's talk was part of a European Union Center event called Estonia's Singing Revolution. The talk was followed later that evening by a screening of the documentary, The Singing Revolution, itself followed by a panel discussion by Jim Tusty, producer of the film, and Carol Leff, professor of political science at UIUC. You can watch Ambassador Kaljurand's full talk below or by clicking here.

Marina Kaljurand has previously served as Undersecretary for Foreign Economic Relations and Development Aid in Estonia (2008-2011), and Ambassador to the Republic of Kazakhstan, among other posts.
