NEW DATES: Lennart Meri Conference 3-5 September 2021

The 14th Lennart Meri Conference (LMC) was initially planned for May 2020 and then for May 14-16, 2021 in Tallinn, Estonia. The new dates of the LMC 2021 are September 3-5.

We have been closely monitoring the spread of COVID-19 and considering whether and how it would be possible to welcome our guests without risk to their health. Unfortunately, now we have reached the conclusion that we need to postpone the conference again. More information about LMC 2021.

Until then, you can enjoy the spirit of Lennart Meri Conference online. During the last months, we have been challenging leading foreign and security policy thinkers around the world to address topical issues. Sit back, relax and enjoy the food for thought – the Lennart Meri Conference Talks with:
