New CMS Report: Technology Competition: Strategic Implications for the West and Denmark

The Centre for Military Studies has today published the report “Technology Competition: Strategic Implications for the West and Denmark”. The report is authored by Henrik Breitenbauch, head of Centre for Military Studies, and Tobias Liebetrau, postdoc at Centre de Recherches Internationales, Sciences Po.
