The DSF's Co-founder, Lady Olga Maitland
Welcome to The Defence and Security Forum

The Defence and Security Forum was founded by Lady Olga Maitland in 1983. It was originally a campaigning organisation known as Families for Defence launched to challenge the anti-nuclear protest movements such as CND. Families for Defence’s remit was to promote the NATO case for multilateral nuclear disarmament. In the course of doing so the purpose was to focus on the importance of a proper provision for the defence of the United Kingdom.

Yesterday's campaigns in Iraq, Afghanistan: Today the UK is an active partner in the US military offensive in Iraq.

Where will we be tomorrow?


General Carter has a reputation for plain speaking - and standing up for a modern armed force capable of dealing with today’s threats. Are we prepared and capable of responding to a crisis? As tensions rise not only in the Middle East, but also Ukraine, with an increasingly assertive Russia, what role can we be expected to play with today’s much reduced armed forces.
