The Capstone team will be tasked with creating a policy and strategy answering the question of what it takes for Estonia to continue to be a global thought leader, pushing above its weight so-to-speak, and assist it to develop a common platform for small nations to pursue and advance, including the establishment of supporting associations and institutions for small nations. The platform is to set forth a strategic and implementable program that is embedded in the international rule of law and in international institutions so that Estonia and other small nations can prosper economically, culturally, socially and politically.  The challenge is similar to what the island nations of the world confronted in creating a common international platform on their challenges, in particular the challenges presented by rising sea levels, climate change and non-continental geographical locations.
