Human Development Report

newsEstonian Human Development Report is a unique report that brings together a dataset and descriptions of Estonia’s socio-economic development and is compiled by the most renowned
scientists in the Republic of Estonia. Report is a faithful reflection of the Estonian reality and can be used as the basis for the actions of decision-makers in both politics and the economy, as well as in other fields.

EIA methodology is based on the international standard of Human Development Reports, which have been published by the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) since 1990. By taking into account the large number of indicators, each country in the world is ranked every year by the Human Development Index, which helps to compare people’s real quality of life in different countries.

Estonian Cooperation Assembly has published the Human Development Report since 2006. Human Development Reports are compiled as follows: The Council of the Estonian Cooperation Assembly set the topic of the report, which is issued every two years. For supplying the topic with content, the Head of the Cooperation Assembly seeks an Editor in Chief via invited tender. The Editor in Chief must be a post-doctorate researcher (preferably a professor) in an Estonian public university and the article authors must come from at least three Estonian universities. The Editor in Chief and his proposed editors team are elected by the Council of the Cooperation Assembly. Report is financed from the Cooperation Assembly’s budget.

Estonian Human Development Reports can be ordered via electronic form or purchased from the Estonian Cooperation Assembly office (Tõnismägi 3a-7, Tallinn).

Estonian Human Development Report 2016/2017 ´Estonia at the Age of Migration´

The Human Development Report 2016/2017, entitled “Estonia in the Migration Era” concentrates on the influences of new migration era, trans-nationality, cohesion in society, the future existence of the Estonia’s population, and language and culture. The main message of the Human Development Report is that Estonia’s size of population will not be maintained without migration. Hence, Estonia has to decide whether we want to manage migration in a favourable way for us or merely respond to self-forming immigration. In the opinion of the authors, Estonia needs a proactive policy on how to solve the fall in the the size of its population, migration issues and integration problems.

The Estonian Human Development 2016/2017 is produced by Tiit Tammaru, editor-in-chief, Professor of Urban and Population Geography at the University of Tartu, co-editors Kristina Kallas and Raul Eamets from the University of Tartu, and 40 authors. The authors are from University of Tartu, Tallinn University and the Tallinn University of Technology. Read more about the compilation process.
