About the Centre
Centre for Military Studies (CMS) was founded in 2010 in collaboration between the Danish Ministry of Defence and the political parties behind the defense settlement. CMS is one out of a number of research centres at the Department of Political Science, University of Copenhagen.
The Centre focuses on policy-relevant research and research-based information and innovation that identify options for Denmark’s defence and security policy in a globalised world. Research at the Centre is thus a means to identify policy options in a complex, interconnected security environment. We work closely with the Danish Ministry of Defence, the Danish Armed Forces and the political level to investigate issues and develop ideas and options.
