Continuation of collaborative project with Danish Institute for International Studies
The collaboration between the Danish Institute for International Studies (DIIS) and the Institute for European Politics (IEP) will continue in 2017. Launched in 2015 with a project on Danish-German military cooperation, the most recent project in 2016 concentrated on the effects of the refugee crisis on Denmark and the German government’s EU-policy agenda as well as its political leeway. This year, security debates in the run-up to the German national elections will be the main focus of the collaboration.
The project aims to analyze which societal developments are perceived and framed as threats to domestic security and how political parties position themselves in this context. Additionally, implications of German domestic security debates on EU politics will be examined. Two articles will be published in the course of the cooperation project in 2017.
