Research on defence and security policy
Defence and security policy research can help to stimulate public debate, inform political considerations and thus influence the way in which nations conduct defence policy. Several institutes, educational establishments and universities in Denmark are dealing with defence and security policy research.
The Ministry of Defence funds part of this research through the defence budget. However, the research is conducted independently and the conclusions do not necessarily reflect the views of the Ministry of Defence.
