Transition from half a century’s totalitarian Soviet occupation back to a commonwealth of democratic societies is a success story for the Estonian people and also for the EASS. Ongoing value changes and increased professionalism, based on democratic methods of work within the public service, have played an important role both in achieving membership in NATO and acceptance in the EU.
The Academy has served its significant obligations for Estonian transition since 1992 back into the European community. Academy graduates, employed as senior and top-ranked civil servants, have engaged themselves with a respectable goal – to serve people according to the highest professional standards in cooperation with European institutions of internal security and law enforcement. There is increasing number of EU-funded projects for development of professional training methods and learning environment work in progress at the EASS.
Cooperation and exchange of best practices with universities and other educational institutions abroad have always been highly valued by the Academy’s staff, professors and students
