The annual Risk Assessment contains an up-to-date intelligence assessment of developments abroad impacting on Danish security.

The cyber threat, Russia’s political and military activities, and the terrorist threat against the West are, once again, the main points of emphasis of our Risk Assessment.

This year, though, more emphasis has been put on Russia and the Arctic, especially Russia’s influence campaigns and its military expansion in the western part of the country and in the Arctic. Also, China has been given more focus.

In addition, some areas of the world will continue to pose foreign and security policy challenges to Denmark, including the Middle East, parts of Africa, and Afghanistan, which are dealt with in their own separate chapters. The Assessment concludes with a short analysis of the issue of North Korea’s missile and nuclear weapons programme, which still features on the international security policy agenda.

Information Cut-Off Date is 23 November 2018.
