Today, the new issue of the journal “Riigikogu Toimetised” (RiTo, Riigikogu Journal) will be presented in the Exhibition Hall of the Riigikogu (Parliament of Estonia). The latest RiTo focuses on the vision of Estonia, discussing among other things the prospects of education and research, labour market and economy in Estonia. Presentation of the RiTo can also be followed online as live broadcast.

“Estonia needs a big idea, and most probably this could be education,” Editor-in-Chief of the Journal Mart Raudsaar said. “Certainly it is also important to survive in the world, and the members of the Riigikogu who participated in the conversation circle of the Riigikogu Journal were of one mind on that.”

The Editor-in-Chief said that several articles in the new issue of RiTo deal with education, including the role of the colleges of Estonian universities as development factors of the regions. Economic geographer Garri Raagmaa, Associate Professor of Regional Planning at the University of Tartu, will represent that topic at the presentation. Director of the Entrepreneurship and Export Centre of Enterprise Estonia Tea Danilov will also participate in the panel. The panel will be led by Editor-in-Chief of RiTo Mart Raudsaar.

The 33rd issue of RiTo also contains a playful essay by Igor Gräzin on the role of Livonia in the past and future of Estonia, a reflection “Immigration Culture in a Childless Country” by Professor Rein Taagepera, and the analysis “Estonian Scientific Research in Time Perspective” by the Estonian Research Council and the Ministry of Education and Research.

One of the core texts of modern parliamentarianism, “Parliament in the Media Society – Crossing of Parliamentary and Media Arenas” by Stefan Marschall, Professor at Heinrich Heine University in Düsseldorf, is published only in the paper version of RiTo 33.

Besides the new issue of the journal, the new web environment of RiTo is also presented. The web environment offers new user possibilities, like subject search across the whole RiTo, starting from the first issues of the journal.

The articles of RiTo 33 will be available on the web starting from December 2016. At the moment, all articles are available in the paper version that can be bought online and from bookshops. The paper version of the journal “Riigikogu Toimetised” can be subscribed to on the new web page of RiTo.

In Tallinn, the journal can be bought at “Rahva Raamat” bookshops on Pärnu Road and in Viru Centre, the shop “Ateena” of the Estonian Language Foundation, the Estonian National Library and the Parliament Shop at Toompea. In Tartu, RiTo is sold at “Rahva Raamat” bookshop in the Tasku Centre and the bookshop of the University of Tartu. RiTo is also available at the web shop of the National Library.

Next issue of RiTo will be published in December 2016.
