The Baltic States: Why All You Think You Know Is Wrong

25 years ago Lithuania declared independence. By the following year all the Baltic states were recognised members of the international community.

Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania are often understood as three close-knit states, but nothing could be further from the truth.
In this episode Gabrielė Gedvilaitė from Lithuania and Merilin Iital from Estonia tell us about the development their countries have gone through and explain why the whole idea of a Baltic-ness is a foreign construction that people from the Baltics don’t recognize.

We also talk to Lars Johannsen, professor and expert of the Baltics and examine the challenges facing the Baltic states today.

Host is Kim Laura Schönrock
