In Which Estonia Do I Want To Live?

Editors Margit Sutrop, Marko Ringo, Aire Vaher

Copyreader Inna Lusti

Proofreading Sirje Hiie, Tiia Varol

Published with the support of the Estonian Ministry of Education and Research, and the Office of the President

On the 23 February 2007, at the 89th Independence Day reception at the University of Tallinn, President Toomas Hendrik Ilves announced the essay contest “In Which Estonia Do I Want To Live?”. During his speech, he said that Estonia has once again been restored as a nation and taken its place among the Western democracies, but this is not yet the Estonia we would all like to live in. Rather than complaining that this is not precisely the Estonia we wanted, we should talk about which Estonia we do want.

The idea for this essay contest came from the Head of the Centre for Ethics of the University of Tartu, Professor Margit Sutrop. It was discussed by the President’s Academic Advisory Board and its members agreed to judge the contest. The event was also supported by the Office of the President and by the journal Akadeemia.

A total of 326 essays were received, including 115 from primary school students, 86 by high school students and 125 by adults. The authors were from a diverse range of occupations and their ages ranged from seven to ninety-four. They wrote about the environment, education, politics, emigration, alcoholism, equal opportunities and national identity.

The best essay by an adult was published in the journal Akadeemia, and the best by a secondary school student in Eesti Päevaleht. Others were also published in Täheke and Hea Laps. In addition to those selected works, this compilation contains comments by the judges, and a foreword from the organisers.

 

Estonian Female Ministers: Collection of Writings about Women at the Top of Politics

Editors Margit Sutrop, Kristi Lõuk, Toomas Kiho

Copyreader Maris Makko

Designer Sirje Ratso

Eesti Keele Sihtasutus 2007

Language: Estonian

Published with the support of the project „More women into politics“ of the Ministry of Social Affairs and Open Estonian Foundation

In this book you can read about the life and work of all the female ministers of the Republic of Estonia – it is the first complete overview of all the female ministers who have served the Republic of Estonia in the last 89 years: Renate Kaasik, Aino Lepik von Wirén, Siiri Oviir, Klara Hallik, Lagle Parek, Marju Lauristin, Liia Hänni, Liina Tõnisson, Tiiu Aro, Andra Veidemann, Signe Kivi, Katrin Saks, Mailis Reps, Kristiina Ojuland and Ester Tuiksoo.

In this book they speak through interviews about their development, coming into politics and being a minister. These stories about their doings present a picture of Estonia’s recent past: state building, political struggle, socio-economical changes and party relations.

To provide comparison, four other Northern and Baltic top women politicians were interviewed (Ene Ergma, Vigdís Finnbogadóttir, Riitta Uosukainen, Vaira Vīķe-Freiberga).

The book begins with a theoretical part, in which several authors discuss how to increase women’s participation in politics, why it is needed and what prevents it.

The book was compiled and published by the Estonian Women Student Society and the Centre for Ethics of the University of Tartu.

The book was compiled with the support of Volkswagen Stiftung, and published with the support of Open Estonia Foundation.

Language: Estonian

During seminars at the Centre for Ethics, doctoral students at the University of Tartu found that organisations and businesses are increasingly putting into effect their codes of conduct. The students have now written a handbook providing general guidelines for this process.

The first part of the book explores the concepts of profession, rights, religion, etiquette etc. The book also presents a history of such codes of conduct from Ancient Greece to the modern day. The book offers guidelines for organisations and companies intending to establish their own codes of conduct. It also suggests ways of enforce codes of conduct and indicates the problems that may arise.

The second part of the book comprises eighty-six codes of conduct that are currently in effect in Estonia. Some of these items are contained in just one page with a general description of relevant values, whereas other more complex codes span multiple pages and include detailed explanations of the relationship between clients, co-workers and supervisors.

In addition, there is a bibliography listing further reading, including useful internet sites.

The Handbook of Codes of Conduct is available for download in pdf-format at the Open Estonian Foundation homepage (in Estonian).
