Defense and Security

On the 1st of June 2022, the Danes voted to abolish the defence opt out. Now Denmark must enter wholeheartedly into European defense cooperation. We have a responsibility to our allies.

In security policy, we must think long-term. We must work for the EU's strategic and defence independence. By removing the defence opt-out, we are helping to strengthen Europe, which is much needed!

The European democracies are on shaky ground as long as we cannot guarantee our own security. Developments in the US over the last few years have demonstrated that there is more focus on their internal problems. A strong Europe is not in opposition to a strong USA. Choosing Europe means Denmark's influence on how we can guarantee Europe's security for the future.

We choose Europe

  • We support Denmark guaranteeing 2% of GDP to invest in defence.

  • We must support our veterans, both financially and mentally.

  • Digital security must be strengthened, but surveillance is not freedom and citizens' rights must be safeguarded.

In Volt's election programme for the European Parliament elections, we have several wishes for the EU of the future

Volt: It is our democratic duty in Europe to fight for regime change in Russia

Europe should do everything possible to support Ukraine's sovereignty and ensure regime change in Russia. This is not a war between Russia and the West, but Putin and the West, writes Kathrine Richter.

The defense opt-out had to go - here's why

By working together, we strengthen our overall capacity, save money and utilise our strengths most effectively!

Volt's 5+1 focus areas

We have big challenges, but we can solve them together when we work together!

These are Volt's 5+1 focus areas in ALL of Europe:

See Volt Denmark's policy
  • 01

    Smart State

    An innovative state takes care of its citizens and is at the same time ready with flexible solutions. We will therefore strengthen both our digital AND our human solutions.

  • 02

    Economic rebirth

    In order to meet the challenges of the future, we must rethink the economy in Europe. From the labor market to our monetary and financial policy.

  • 03

    Citizen involvement and democracy

    We want to strengthen the individual citizen's voice in everyday life. It is a failure of democracy if citizens are only listened to at election time.

  • 04

    Social Equality

    Volt wants an equal society where the individual potential can be unleashed, and here Volt wants to take the lead and take greater responsibility.

  • 05

    Global Balance

    The western world is responsible for a large emission of CO2 and therefore we must also be at the forefront of developing solutions.

  • +1

    EU reform

    We have a vision for Europe that guarantees equal access to education, healthcare and social protection and employment opportunities for all. A Europe where citizens have the same rights and can trust that everyone contributes and benefits equally from their commitment.
