NIDV Press Release Defence White Paper 2022: Stronger Netherlands, Safer Europe

Politicians are serious about ensuring peace and security. This is evident from the Defence White Paper 2022, which the NIDV welcomes. The NATO standard of 2% GNP will be met, allowing the Ministry of Defence and its partners to fulfil their constitutional tasks: not a goal in itself, but a financial minimum for peace and security. Thus, security professionals not only get the money but also the means to do their job. More than ever, the Ministry of Defence seeks cooperation with the industry, society, and Europe. The defence and security sector with its companies and knowledge institutions is ready to take up the gauntlet. The challenges are great, but the government is not alone. (Photo credits: Defensie.nl)

In Memoriam John Jansen

With the passing of John Jansen, we lose a family man, a defence expert and a fine colleague. His activities since the 1980s have been characterised by equipment cooperation. Especially in the office of the Dutch National Armaments Director, his international attitude came into its own. Through his two placements in Brussels, his international orientation was formed. He helped shape the current NATO Communications and Information Agency (NCIA). He also had a special significance in the establishment of the Western European Armaments Group and the European Defence Agency (EDA).
