The peer-reviewed Journal of Social Sciences "EAST-WEST STUDIES" has been published since 2007 by Tallinn University Law School (up to 2010 former University Nord) and since 2015 by Tallinn University School of Governance, Law and Society.

Estonia is an European country and a member of the European Union and other European institutions as well as one of the easternmost members of these bodies. East-West Studies publishes articles not only on Estonian and European but also global issues, including East-West relations and problems. The journal offers original explanations and solutions to theoretical, methodological as well as practical problems; contributing to better understanding of challenges facing humankind.
