Research at CMS 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 other national and international stakeholders to investigate issues and develop ideas and options. CMS also takes part in teaching and research at the Department of Political Science.
CMS was established in 2010 by the political parties behind the Danish Defence Agreement. The Centre employs around 15 people including researchers, military officers, research assistants and PhD-students. The management of the Centre includes Director, Senior Researcher Henrik Breitenbauch, and Deputy Director, Senior Researcher Kristian Søby Kristensen.
