The Norwegian Atlantic Committee (DNAK) is a politically independent organization. Our goal is to contribute to increased knowledge and debate about Norwegian foreign-, defence,- and security policy, focusing on the transatlantic relations. The theme and events of the committee reflect the recent international events and solid geopolitical changes shaping Norway´s surroundings. DNAK organize meeting, seminars, the Leangkollen Security Conference, roundtables, regional courses in international politics and study trips, some in cooperation with others.

Seminars

Organizing seminars are among the main activities of the Norwegian Atlantic Committee, and we regularly arrange lunch seminars at our office at Fridtjof Nansens plass 8 in the center of Oslo. We aim to provide a non-political, multidisciplinary platform where different actors can engage in open and free discussions on current issues. Our speakers are both Norwegian and international experts with different backgrounds: Researchers, ministers, politicians, military, media and organizations. Stay up to date on upcoming events on our website or follow us on social media. You can also sign up for our mailing list to get all invitations straight to your inbox at the bottom of this page.
