Lennart Meri Conference

The Lennart Meri Conference is a high-level annual meeting at which foreign and security policy issues are discussed from the perspective of the Northern and Eastern parts of Europe. The participants, from Europe, the United States, Russia and further, include heads of state, ministers, parliamentarians, senior officials from international organisations, academics and media representatives.

The conference was conceived in 2007 to carry forward President Lennart Meri’s legacy as a leading European statesman and foreign policy thinker and to ensure that Estonia continues to be seen as a country willing and able to play a proper part in the identification of solutions to Europe’s problems. It has since developed to become the biggest security conference in the region.

The conference agenda reflects issues that are directly or indirectly related to the security of the North- Eastern corner of Europe, including: the trans-Atlantic relationship, the future of NATO and the EU, energy security, Russia and its relationships with its neighbours, the future of Afghanistan and Iraq, and the economic health of Europe and the world.
