  • The Estonian agricultural innovation system.
Estonian agriculture has undergone significant growth and structural change since the 1990s in a policy and regulatory environment that has been mostly supportive of investment. The implementation of the Common Agricultural Policy has contributed to the modernisation of the country's agriculture, leading to high productivity growth with relatively limited environmental pressure. High educational levels and strong public research institutions have also provided a fertile environment for innovation in Estonia, although Estonian agri-food companies struggle to participate in food and agricultural research activities. Attracting and retaining people in the agriculture sector at a time of growing labour and skills shortages in rural areas is an increasing challenge. Further innovation and adaptation will be needed to sustain and expand agriculture and food in Estonia.

  • Introduction
  • The outset : the Livonian and Swedish legal orders at the time of the Swedish conquest
  • The reorganisation of the Livonian judiciary under the Swedish rule
  • The procedure in the Livonian courts of the Swedish era
  • Transplanting Swedish law? : the legal sources at the Livonian courts
  • Conclusions.
In Conquest and the Law in Swedish Livonia (ca. 1630-1710), Heikki Pihlajamaki offers an exciting account of the law and judiciary in seventeenth-century Livonia. Immediately after Sweden conquered the province in the 1620s, a reorganization of the Livonian judiciary began. Its legal order became largely modelled after Swedish law, which differed in important ways from its Livonian counterpart. While Livonian legal tradition was firmly anchored in the European ius commune, the conquerors' law was, by nature, not founded in legal learning. The volume convincingly demonstrates how the differences in legal cultures decisively affected the way Livonian judicial and procedural systems were shaped. Based on archival sources, the study presents an important contribution to the comparative legal history of the early modern period.

Estonia is highly integrated into the global trade system: it exports approximately 80% of GDP and around half of domestic employment is sustained by foreign demand. Given that international trade and foreign direct investment are considered as major channels of technology diffusion and productivity growth, this bodes well for reviving income convergence. To capitalize on the country’s high trade intensity, policymakers need to remove remaining trade barriers and improve policies fostering knowledge diffusion as well as talent retention and attraction. At the same time, to ensure that benefits of more trade are shared across the population, the social safety net should be bolstered, and participation in upskilling programmes and their labour-market relevance increased. This Working Paper relates to the 2017 OECD Economic Survey of New Zealand (www.oecd.org/eco/surveys/economic-survey-estonia.htm).

This is the first book to present the law of the Baltic States in one comprehensive and coherent volume in English. The Baltic States region, which was incorporated by the Soviet Union for 50 years and now is the only such territory in the EU, continues to be characterized by a number of unique traits, problems and developmental trends. This book addresses these facets of law - the status quo, problems and trends - by adopting a comparative perspective structure for all three Baltic States (divided into three main parts - Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania). Each of these parts examines similar core aspects: General Frameworks, Public Law, and Private Law. Taking into account the peculiarities of each country, the individual chapters provide analyses of principles, problems and developments in specific legal branches. The authors of the book are recognized academics and professionals in the field of law. Taken together, their contributions offer a valuable tool and resource for anyone interested in the law of the Baltic States: students, legal practitioners, scholars, administrators, etc.

This handsome book explores the life and work of a little-known, immensely talented early Renaissance painter from Estonia This handsome volume is the first in English devoted to Michel Sittow (c. 1469-1525), an artist from Estonia who trained in the tradition of early Netherlandish painting. Sittow worked for many high-profile patrons, including Isabella of Castile in Spain, and specialized in beautiful small devotional works and portraits; the portraits, in particular, are artistically sophisticated paintings that have been characterized as among the finest of their time. Featuring approximately twenty works attributed to Sittow, as well as paintings by his contemporaries, including Hans Memling and Juan de Flandes, this book provides an important opportunity to learn about Sittow's oeuvre and to appreciate it within the cultural context of his homeland as well as the broader milieu of early northern Renaissance art.

"Ce livre explore l'histoire des deux missions de terrain effectuées en 1937 et 1938 par Boris Vildé et Léonide Zouroff au Setomaa, une région située aujourd'hui de part et d'autre de la frontière entre la République d'Estonie et la Fédération de Russie. Il a pour but de faire connaître les documents, les collections d'objets et les photographies uniques se rapportant à ces missions dans une zone de contacts entre deux populations orthodoxes distinctes : les Setos, d'origine fennique, et les Russes, Slaves orientaux. Ce voyage dans le temps évoque à la fois l'histoire de la création du Musée de l'Homme, avec ses activités intenses de recherche de terrain, et celle du Setomaa et de ses phénomènes culturels. Pour ce faire Tatiana Benfoughal, Olga Fishman et Heiki Valk ont réuni des chercheurs français, estoniens et russes dont les regards croisés, parfois divergents mais toujours complémentaires, permettent de replacer l'apport scientifique de Boris Vildé et de Léonide Zouroff dans un large contexte scientifique.Docteur en ethnologie, attachée honoraire au Muséum national d'Histoire naturelle (Musée de l'Homme), Tatiana Benfoughal est une spécialiste de l'ethnologie européenne et nord-africaine."--Page 4 of cover.

Estonia is perhaps the only country in Europe that lacks a comprehensive history of its Jewish minority. Spanning over 150 years of Estonian Jewish history, On the Margins is a truly unique book. Rebuilding a life beyond so-called Pale of Jewish Settlement in the Russian Empire, the Jewish cultural autonomy in interwar Estonia, and the trauma of Soviet occupation of 1940-41 are among the issues addressed in the book but most profoundly, the book wrestles with the subject of the Holocaust and its legacy in Estonia. Specifically, it examines the quasi-legal system of murder instituted in Nazi-occupied Estonia, confiscation of Jewish property, and Jewish forced labor camps and develops an analysis of the causes of collaboration during the Holocaust. The book also explores the dynamics of war crimes trials in the Soviet Union since the 1960s and so-called denaturalization trials in the United States in the 1980s. The haunting memory of Soviet and Nazi rule, the book concludes, prevents a larger segment of today's Estonian population from facing up to the Holocaust and the universal message that it carries.
