Durham, NC - Estonian Prime Minister Taavi Rõivas, the youngest leader in the European Union, will discuss international security from an Eastern European perspective in a talk Wednesday, March 23, at Duke.

Rõivas’ talk, “A 21st Century State: Anything is Possible,” takes place at 1 p.m. in Sanford 201 at the Sanford School of Public Policy. The event is free and open to the public and parking is available for a fee at the Bryan Center parking deck.

Rõivas, 36, became prime minister of Estonia and leader of the country’s reform party in spring 2014, after previously serving as the country’s minister of social affairs.

A delegation of approximately 30 members of the Estonian government will accompany Rõivas. In addition to international security, he will discuss the importance of maintaining a technologically advanced state.
