Strategic Defence and Security Review Public Engagement

Work on the 2015 National Security Strategy (NSS) and Strategic Defence and Security Review (SDSR) is now under way.



The Cabinet Office, Department for International Development, Foreign and Commonwealth Office, Home Office, Ministry of Defence as well as other departments are working together on the NSS and SDSR. This review will look at the full range of threats that we face; it will examine the capabilities we need to counter them; and help us judge how to resource those capabilities.

As part of this work, we are engaging with a range of audiences, including Parliament, academics, industry, think tanks, Allies and partners, non-governmental organisations and the public. This is why we have developed an online form giving members of the public the opportunity to contribute ideas and suggestions on defence and security matters which will be used to inform the work we are doing.

The NSS and SDSR 2015 form closed on 10th November 2015. The NSS and SDSR will be published later this year.
