Danish Center for International Studies and Human Rights

The Danish Centre for International Studies and Human Rights (DCISM) was established with the aim of strengthening research, analysis, and information activities in Denmark concerning international affairs, i.e. the fields of foreign, security, and development policy; conflict; holocaust; genocide and political mass murders; and human rights in Denmark and abroad. The Centre, established as of January 2003, consists of two independent institutes: the  Danish Institute for International Studies (DIIS) and the Danish Institute for Human Rights (DIHR).

The Department on conflict and securityís research centres on the use of force in the contemporary world. It seeks to explain and understand the ways in which armed force and terrorism is used with the aim of enhancing our ability to prevent, manage and end the use of armed force and terrorism. The bulk of the Departmentís research is carried out within the Defence and Security Studies Programme.

Research subjects are formulated in consultation with the Ministry of Defence and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, but the design and the conclusions of the research are entirely independent.
