This annual Risk Assessment collates the key threats and a number of other issues abroad that have an impact on Denmark’s security and strategic interests.

This year, the Risk Assessment starts out with a chapter on the Arctic, where the interests of the great powers have direct impact on, and growing significance for, the Kingdom of Denmark. In addition, just as in recent years, the main points of emphasis are on Russia, the cyber threat and the threat of terrorism. Also, China’s growing global influence is dealt with in this year’s Risk Assessment.

In addition, the Middle East, parts of Africa, and Afghanistan, all of which will continue to pose foreign and security policy challenges to Denmark, will be examined in separate chapters.

Editing was finalised on 20 November 2019.
