  • Three Dilemmas of Democracy

    My doctoral thesis Pääsemine ja häving: Demokraatia mõju Soome ja Eesti julgeolekule aastatel 1918–1948 (Escape and Destruction: Impact of Democracy on the Security of Finland and Estonia 1918–1948) argues that the link between democracy and security cannot be reduced to the three classical dilemmas: freedom vs. security, freedom vs. sovereignty, and sovereignty vs. security. The aim of the article is to examine these dilemmas by bringing examples from Estonian and Finnish history.
