The Danish Foreign Policy Society
celebrates its 75th anniversary!

This year marks the 75th anniversary of the Danish Foreign Policy Society. When the Society was founded, the aim was to further the debate and interest regarding foreign policy in Denmark, given that foreign policy was too important a subject to be left solely to politicians. 
 
That was the view of our founder Ole Lippmann back in 1946 and that is still our view today. 
 
In a time where epidemics can evolve into pandemics with the speed of light, where democracies have come under pressure in several places in the world and where false information is spreading faster and easier than ever before, it seems more important than ever to deliver qualified information and debate on foreign policy, international relations, and global tendencies. 
 
This requires actors whose purpose it is to inform on a broad spectrum across different sectors and actors, who are not bound by political or economic considerations. The Danish Foreign Policy Society has been such an actor for 75 years now. This is a fact that we are immensely proud of and one we wish to celebrate. 
 
For this reason we are inviting members and friends of The Danish Foreign Policy Society to a celebratory evening, and it is our great pleasure to invite you and a companion to join us.
