Danish daily: The largest European defense companies helped organizing the support that they themselves received

March 15, 2017

Series of articles in the newspaper Information:
The EU spent billions of DKK supporting the growth of European surveillance and security industry, among other things through large-scale research programs.

In this series, we examine what happened to the money, and we demonstrate how the largest European defense companies helped organizing the support that later on they themselves received.

Furthermore we scrutinize some of the controversial industry products and how sales of advanced monitoring equipment from countries including Denmark ends up in dictatorships known for monitoring and cracking down on dissidents.

The cooperation about examining the European security and surveillance industry began last year at the initiative of the Dutch De Correspondent.

The project has a European website which is constantly updated with all articles from different countries as well as other extras.

The project is supported by Journalismfund.eu.

This was reported by Danish daily Information on 6 March 2017. The journalists are respectively Sebastian Gjerding and Lasse Skou Andersen.
