The Estonian Foreign Policy Institute, Eesti Välispoliitika Instituut (EVI) is an autonomous research unit operating under the International Centre for Defence and Security in Tallinn. The mission of EVI is to promote a deeper understanding of international affairs and of Estonia’s role in a changing world by providing a forum for informed discussion, analysis and debate.

To this end, the staff of EVI produces commentary to the media, arranges public lectures, organizes seminars and conferences, and participate in international research networks. In addition to fostering the development of a global affairs constituency, EVI produces research utilized in foreign policy decision-making. To accomplish this, EVI co-operates closely with government bodies, universities, and other research institutes in Estonia and abroad.
