Estonia and the World: How the First Digital Nation Handles Security and Economy in a Turbulent Era

October 27, 2020 | 4:00 pm to 5:00 pm

About the Event

From e-voting to e-banking; from e-healthcare to becoming the world’s first paperless government, Estonia has been globally recognized as one of the most digitally advanced nations in the world. And while the process of becoming the first e-country didn’t just happen overnight, Estonia could serve as a blueprint for other nations who seek to build digital societies.

Join the World Affairs Council of Philadelphia and the Foreign Policy Research Institute for a discussion with the Honorable Jonatan Vseviov, Estonian Ambassador to the United States, about how Estonia is a pioneer in digital initiatives, and how the country handles everything from defense and security to governance and the economy, especially during such turbulent times.
