Social Sciences

Achieving success in Estonia is a game of juggling international research and public expectations for scientists. Having to convince the public that your work will also be visibly applied to everyday life. As a result, an interesting and exciting trend has emerged. Research within social sciences in Estonia has various applications in media studies, psychology, innovative learning and teaching solutions, as well as demographic studies, etc.

However, most of all Estonia is famous for its e-solutions, e-voting and most recently e-residency.

As a result, Estonian social scientists are interested in the impact of e-voting on political behaviour. They have rather surprising findings to share from their studies based on the experiences of e-voting in Estonia.

Another concern of modern societies is the growing amount of bureaucracy. The issue of whether bureaucratic institutions can be innovative has also become a poignant field of study for Estonian researchers.
