BASTIAN EMIL JØRGENSEN, WINNER OF THE AARHUS SYMPOSIUM AWARD 2017

No longer shall the threats of yesterday dictate our defence capabilities of tomorrow

The winner of the Aarhus Symposium Award 2017 was Bastian Emil Jørgensen, MSc student in Economics at Copenhagen University. Bastian wrote his essay in response to the challenge put forward by Bjarne Corydon regarding the challenges facing public institutions and how to meet them. He argued that the Danish military conscription should be reformed to meet the security demands in a modern world where cyber warfare is a rising concern. You can read his inspiring essay here.
