November 4-9, 2019 we had the pleasure to host yet another UA delegation in Tallinn. The week was intense – Ukrainians had the possibility to hear about Estonia´s foreign policy priorities, cyber diplomacy and cyber security, digital government and ICT, Estonia´s decentralisation reform, current challenges of Europe, digital and public diplomacy, Estonia´s way towards EU and nation building, EU neighbourhood policy, and small states in IR.
