Think tank

The purpose of CDS is to act as a focus for research on a wide range of defense and security issues. It does this by conducting its own research, by commissioning research from outside, and by organizing working groups, conferences and seminars to draw together the work of academic and policy specialists in a wide range of areas. The center is part of the War Studies Group at King's College, which is the largest concentration of expertise for security studies research and training in Europe.
