Denmark at War: Patterns and Developments in Denmark´s Military Engagement

Research output: Book/ReportReport

Denmark – a small country with a Nordic security identity – has increased its military engagement significantly since the end of the Cold War. The goal of Danish contributions to international military operations is no longer exclusively peacekeeping, but also making peace, and Danish military operations are no longer exclusively under the auspices of the UN, which has been replaced by NATO as the primary institution for Danish military operations and supplemented by participation in international coalitions. This development has enhanced Denmark’s status as an ally of the United States and increased Danish access to US policy-makers, but it also creates new challenges for Denmark’s national security, international standing and foreign policy process.
