Estonian e-Residency: Redefining the Nation-State in the Digital Era

Working Paper No.3 (September 2015)

Estonia’s new “e-Residency” initiative is an ambitious project that for the first time enables people from anywhere in the world to become digital residents of another nation. Like other pioneering developments in the Estonian “e-state,” the e-Residency project challenges traditional notions of residency, citizenship, territoriality, and globalisation.
