At Tallinn University School of Governance, Law and Society the study area of International Relations (IR) is celebrating this year its´ 10th anniversary. Over that span, the school, the discipline, and the world have undergone immense change. We will take the opportunity of our anniversary to reflect upon these changes, and imagine how the next ten years will shape our department, IR, and the world at large.
