Contemporary security challenges are mostly cross-border and cross-sectorial – dynamic and often very innovative – illegal activities are trying to be a ´step ahead` from counter-measures of law enforcement. The future of internal security in EU is thus mainly matter of effective transnational cooperation and appropriate human resources management based on viable international education. Hence, international security cooperation should be further intensified by extended and more systematic transnational exchange of experiences via common training and mutual learning.
Challenges of the dynamics of international security environment were mostly foreseen already 20 years ago by roadmap towards comprehensive educational and development system under the umbrella of Estonian Academy of Security Sciences, established in 1992 in accordance with principle of legal continuity, as well as in respect with values of security and law enforcement professional traditions. By today, the vision of an open and high quality internal security & law enforcement educational system is steadily developing reality, characterized and recognized by international institutional accreditation to the Estonian Academy of Security Sciences, as the first such kind in Estonia, status of Partnership Academy both for the European Police College CEPOL and Frontex working for common purposes.
The way towards centre for excellence is also characterized by increasing number of international students, development of internal security master studies, as well as viable areas of top-competences such as innovative educational technologies, crisis management, human resource management in area of internal security and migration studies. Know-how proposed by the Academy for international development partnership countries such as Georgia, Kosovo, Moldova and others is highly valued, especially due to our quite unique organizational and management model with two decades of transitional experience.
Contemporary educational and R&D centre for internal security and law enforcement demands flexible international infrastructure and open competence transitions for innovative contributions, enabling networking and mobility amongst students, both academic and administrative staff, as well as the best available academic and practical development conditions. On the bases of Academy`s experiences, we would like to call the Conference for active discussions about quality, innovation and further internationalization of studies, development perspectives work in progress, work-culture and resources management. As important as the direction to way forward is the common understanding how to develop and who are our cooperation partners for public safety in future.
