I have been a lecturer and a professor in the University of Tartu since 1976 in the fields of history and archival studies. I have participated in international science projects and have published five books. During the Singing Revolution, I became an activist of the Popular Front. In 1991, I worked as the Head of the Estonian Information Bureau in Stockholm. In 2001–2015, I worked as the Chairman of Tartu City Council (at intervals, while also serving as an MP). I was a member of the Cultural Affairs Committee in the 11th and 12th Riigikogu.
