Koostada interaktiivne kaart eesti keelde viimase 100 aasta jooksul tulnud 100-st näidissõnast. See eeldas sõnade ja nende päritolu kaardistamist (tööd allikatega), välja valimist (vastavalt kokku lepitud kriteeriumidele) ja esitamist (vormistamist kaardi kujul). Projekti tulemus pidi illustreerima eesti keele ja ühiskonna muutumist alates vabariigi sünnist 1918. aastal.

The aim of the project is to analyse which are the most pressing human rights issues in European societies (or in a specific country, if that is the group preference) and offer possible solutions or initiatives that could assist in improving the situation. The project can focus on one specific pressing issue (e.g. rights of refugees, gender discrimination, sexual minorities) or the topic in general (e.g. human rights awareness, reasons for intolerance). The project has three main stages - collection of data, analysis of data and offering solutions. The analysis and other phases of the project will be based on the specific knowledge and knowhow that is available in the formed group.
The students came to a collective conclusion that there is a lot of room for improvement in the asylum process as well as in the integration process of the refugees to the local society in Estonia. Possible solutions for the current problem could be: Increasing the efficiency of the existing authorities in the asylum process. Creation of a new authority to only handle the affairs involving the asylum seekers and refugees to promote cultural dialogue from procedure, assessment, integration and so on. A possible empowerment programme, such as learning of vocational training like tailoring or cloth making, bead making. Possibly establishing more learning centres for asylum seekers in other to enlighten and educate them on the different proper steps needed for their process and better integration after been granted refugee status.
We plan to send our project to different NGO’s in Estonia to let them know what we found out, and to get it publicized on their websites.
During the project timeline we had few people dropping out from the project which led to the reduction of the interdisciplinary scope of the project to only two different majors. Due to this we also did not have enough resources to create as big a project with events as it was initially planned. In addition to this it was difficult to agree on meeting times for the project members at times.
As one of the positive sides of the project was that we were able to contribute something concrete to the Estonian society and research a problem that is very relevant in Estonia and in the whole Europe. In addition to this it was interesting to conduct the group workings without specific instructions, because we were able to get familiar with different working styles and also creating a project.
We did not have any official partners, however due to our personal connections we were able to get more specific information through different NGOs in Estonia. One of them being the Estonian Refugee Council.
It is difficult to get information regarding the Asylum process as the asylum seekers are in a vulnerable situation and protected by many different laws. We believe that the biggest challenges Estonia faces while dealing with refugees are in the cultural and societal aspects, we became more aware of the challenges that the government and the NGOs face. The attitudes and behavior of the society toward the refugees were interesting, because the results were not only negative as sometimes the media paints them to be. More cultural dialogue should be supported in Estonia to get rid of the racist incidents that came out in the interviews.
The students collaborated well and made some interesting findings. The outcome was a paper on "Human Rights Violations in the Asylum Process in Estonia". This paper could be taken as a basis for further research on this issue.
