The Danish Foreign Policy Society is a private, charitable society aiming to further knowledge of and interest in foreign political questions in Denmark.

We were founded October 31st 1946 with deep roots in the Danish resistance movement. 

The society is independent of state as well as political parties and industrial and organisational interests. It does not hold opinions on political matters but functions exclusively as a facilitator of information, debate, and contacts.

Currently, we have around 1,000 personal members. Another 200 individuals are members via 50 companies and institutions. The society has a youth department, DUS 35, for people under the age of 35 with more than 220 students, young professionals and other young people with an interest in foreign policy.

The Danish Foreign Policy Society regularly hosts meetings, conferences and other types of events featuring prominent Danish and foreign speakers.

We publish the journal Udenrigs thrice a year. The journal is unique in Denmark by being dedicated exclusively to foreign policy. In addition, we publish the series Lande i Lommeformat (Pocket-sized Countries) and relevant columns by prominent writers.

The society organises annual study trips to countries or areas of special interest in the world.

His Royal Highness Crown Prince Frederik of Denmark is the protector of the Society.
