The aim of the workshop is to discuss the resilience of Estonia and the other Baltic countries in the event of migration crisis. How do experts from Lithuania and Latvia assess the capability to face the current situation? As similar situation may affect Estonia, how well are we prepared on an organizational and practical level for situation of mass influx of migrants from third countries? How to ensure that while protecting the border also human rights are protected? What can be learned from our Lithuanian and Latvian colleagues who are currently facing migratory pressure from Belarus?
