I would like to express my heartfelt grief over this sad news. Professor Vahur Made was one of the outstanding people who had an extraordinary ability to inspire and give courage to everyone he came in contact with. His enthusiasm to teach us and learn from us at the same time enabled us to communicate as peers and share insights on matters of mutual interest as equals. I must admit he was one of the few people who made the learning process a great joy for me/us. Hereby I want to extend condolences to his family and loves ones, as well as his colleagues at Estonian School of Diplomacy and its students.

Kõrgkoolijärgne täiendõpe "Rahvusvahelised suhted ja Euroopa integratsioon". Post-graduate 9 month training program "International Relations and European Integration".

Eesti Diplomaatide Kool (EDK) asutati 1990. aastal eesmärgiga koolitada personali uueneva välisministeeriumi tarbeks. Kümnendi keskel õppekava laiendati ning õppima võisid asuda rahvusvaheliste suhete huvilised ka väljaspoolt ministeeriumi. Tänaseks on EDK-l üle 500 vilistlase, kellest paljud on siirdunud Eesti välisteenistusse, pidanud/peavad suursaadiku ametit ning olnud edukad muudeski kõrgetes riigiametites. Teiste hulgas endine välisminister (2002-2005) ja praegune Europarlamendi liige Kristiina Ojuland. Lisaks riigiametitele on EDK lõpetajad olnud edukad ka uurimisasutustes, erasektoris ja mittetulundusühingutes. *** The Estonian School of Diplomacy (ESD) was established in 1990 with the aim to provide education that would ensure future competent personnel for the Estonian Ministry of Foreign Affairs. Today the ESD has more than 500 graduates working in various fields of which most notable is the ministry of foreign affairs. Many graduates have been holding or are currently holding ambassadors post. In addition to Estonian foreign service, our graduates have been successful in other institutions both in public as well as private sector.

Yesterday our students had the pleasure of taking part in the Conference of Human Rights 2019 “Parallel World Values and Interests”, in memoriam Mart Nutt. This year’s conference focused on the possibility of universal human rights in different cultures, human rights in the era of climate change, technology and rising populism. Thank you Inimõiguste Instituut / Estonian Institute of Human Rights for a day full of important yet challenging debates.

Ekke Nõmm: protestid Gruusia valitsust tagasi astuma ei pane Gruusia võimupartei otsus taganeda lubatud valimisreformist tõi inimesed Thbilisi tänavatele protestima. Eesti diplomaatide kooli direktor Ekke Nõmme hinnangul ei mõjuta aga protestid valitsust tagasi astuma ega ka nende toetust järgmistel valimistel.

Ekspert kurdidest: karm reaalsus on, et uus riik saab sündida vaid olemasolevate arvelt

Yesterday Mr Rene Värk gave comments on Välisilm on Kurds attempts to establish their own state from an International Law point of view.

This week Mr Värk, who we often co-operate with, is delivering a course on International Law also to our this year's study group. Kõik maailma territooriumid on ära jagatud ja karm reaalsus on see, et uus riik saab sündida ainult olemasolevate riikide arvelt, tõdes rahvusvahelise õiguse ekspert Rene Värk "Välisilmas" kurdide püüdlustest rääkides.

Flashback: On September 18-21, ESD Director Mr Ekke Nõmm participated at the 46th Meeting of Deans and Directors of Diplomatic Academies and Institutes of International Relations (IFDT) at Geneva, Switzerland.

This annual event is an informal gathering of deans and directors devoted to discussions of issues of modern diplomacy and trends in diplomatic education.

It is no news that diplomacy is also about connecting people.

Today our this year foreign students had a unique possibility of touring around Tallinn with our last year's alumni Eero. Eero introduced the history of Estonia and Tallinn to the brave ones who were eager to go out with today's weather.

Thank you very much Eero for your passion and time taken to do this tour. We hope it will be a nice initiative that will turn into a tradition.
