“The fresh issue deals with the challenges connected with the ageing and decrease of population in Estonia,” Editor-in-Chief Mart Raudsaar said. “The new issue contains articles by researchers who have studied the demographic situation and prospects of Estonia. Some of them have been written by members of the Riigikogu study committee to solve the demographic crisis.”

Director and Senior Researcher Luule Sakkeus, Senior Researcher Lauri Leppik, and Researchers Liili Abuladze and Tiina Tambaum of the Estonian Institute for Population Studies of Tallinn University deal with adjustment to the ageing of population. Associate Professor of Educational Sciences of Tallinn University Tiiu Kuurme writes about motherhood. Professor of State and Citizenship Theory Leif Kalev and Associate Professor of Political Sociology Mari-Liis Jakobson of Tallinn University discuss how to integrate the Estonians living abroad better into our society. Expert of Foresight Centre Johanna Vallistu wrote about future trends and scenarios of labour market. The journal also contains an article on the role of Parliament in the Estonian foreign policy before World War II, and an article on the importance of scientific way of thinking.

Next year, the Riigikogu will celebrate its 100th anniversary. President of the Riigikogu Eiki Nestor writes about the history of the Parliament.
