The chapter presents the dominant discourse in Danish foreign policy. The dominant dis­course articulates the EU as essential and the key platform for Danish foreign policy, while NATO and the United States are also articulated as crucial if mainly in the field of security. The articulation of an activism that breaks with the strategic passivity in the past is the background for Denmark’s participation in conflicts in Syria and Iraq. The UN and in particular Nordic cooperation are not attributed the same value as the EU and NA­TO/the United States. However, particularly from the Foreign and Security Policy Strate­gy 2019–20, tendencies towards an even stronger Danish emphasis on the EU, multilater­alism, international rules, and on issue areas such as security in the neighbourhood, im­migration, the Arctic, and trade are identified. The chapter raises the question of whether theensembleof these tendencies will challenge or reinforce the EU’s and NATO’s central roles
