How safe do we feel in the global crisis today? How does the crisis affect internal security? Are we ready for the next crises and how are we prepared? How can we continue providing high-quality education also during a crisis? 

Crisis management systems are mostly built for handling cataclysmic events caused by human activity or extreme weather conditions. In 2020, the systems of all states were faced with the pandemic. On a theoretical level, we naturally take pandemics into consideration but how prepared are we in practice? In Estonia, every institution is responsible for the crises in its own sector, however, is it a highway or a dead-end in this new situation? 

The leading experts from Estonia and its neighbouring countries share the best lessons and practices gathered in the fields of internal security, healthcare and education in the changed conditions. We will discuss the potential hazards of the global crisis on the internal security of individual states and the possible ways forward. We will talk about the crisis and security – clearly, based on facts and without emotions. 



How did the crisis affect the general vision of security? What should we be prepared for in the future? 

How did we manage to maintain the state’s internal security during the crisis? 

How should we continue and what should be developed further? 

Does Estonia need a separate institution for crisis management? 

The experience gained and solutions found by the neighbouring countries during the crisis 

Remote learning – what can and cannot be taught remotely to ensure security? 

What are the conditions for ensuring good remote learning in the field of internal security? 

Are we ready for another crisis?
