Chapter Summary

This chapter endeavours to appraise Danish democracy's ability to formulate adequate defence policies in the period 1900-40. The e point of departure will be the state's key aims viz. Denmark's survival and integrity, as they were fundamental requirements for its effective foreign and defence policies. For the purpose of the chapter the notion 'realist policy' pertains to foreign and defence policies heeding this. Closely in line with the realist foreign policy, the chapter uses the expression 'classic logic' as a designation of the nexus between realist foreign policy and defence. The chapter also endeavours to throw light on the relationship between defence policy and democratic debate, and it will focus on the political impact of the latter. This focus is chosen, because the debate is where democratic policy is conceived and where standpoints struggle for supremacy.

Keywords: democratic debate; Denmark's defence; realist foreign policy
