YATA Denmark is a nonpartisan youth organization that works with educating and initiating debate about security policy. On a national level we cooperate closely with our parent organization, the Danish Atlantic Treaty Association (DATA). Internationally, we are a member organization of the Youth Atlantic Treaty Association (YATA).
YATA Denmark is run by a group of young volunteers who organize and develop academic as well as social activities.
YATA Denmark works to create strong professional and personal networks nationally and internationally. We are constantly engaging in dialog with Danish and international politicians, researchers and civil society groups.
YATA Denmark's volunteers engage with other young people on a national and international level through unique experiences such as seminars, study trips and visits to various institutions and embassies. The personal development of each volunteer is encouraged through individual, goal-oriented competency development.
One of YATA Denmark's largest and most recent events was organized in a joint effort with DATA and support from ICC (International Club Copenhagen).
With the title, "Turkey - the Country in the Middle", the annual Copenhagen Conference focused on a country with growing influence in both Europe and the MENA countries. With inputs from leading Danish researchers, politicians, and journalists - and the perspectives of the Turkish Ambassador to Denmark - the event outlined Turkey's future challenges and possibilities in an international perspective.
The basis for the conference was DATA's most recent issue of "Sikkerhedspolitisk Info" which is published every six months. The Turkey issue, going by the same name as the conference, was written by Andreas Mølvig Larsen, former DATA intern, student at the University of Southern Denmark and YATA Denmark volunteer.
