Defence Policy and Defence Management

This lecture presents the scope and the content of a defence policy, the main variables and their interrelations. The national defence policy is devised in the context of allied defence policies, the national security policy, other public policies and the respective allocation of public resources. The terms “management” and “security strategy” are also examined briefly in their relation to the formulation of defence policies. Some key references are freely available online, in English.
