On May 1st, Ambassador Peter Taksøe-Jensen handed over his review of Denmark’s foreign and security policy to the Danish Government. An executive summary in English is available here. For the full report in Danish, please click here. 

"On September 15th I was asked by the Government to head a review of Denmark’s external policy areas: Foreign and security policy, defence policy, trade policy and export promotion as well as development policy. The task was to identify Denmark’s strategic interests, come up with ideas for stronger coordination and integration of these policy areas and give recommendations for core tasks and priorities to promote Danish interests in the coming 10-15 years. The idea was to take a step back and come up with ideas and solutions on how best to position Denmark internationally to take on the challenges and opportunities that lie ahead.

I hope the ideas presented here will inspire a political and public debate about the future of Danish diplomacy and defence, their goals and the way to reach them."
