Read the Statutes of RIKO here (in danish)

Foundation of the Council

Danish foreign policy has since the end of The Cold War developed in a direction where the use of military force takes far too much attention, as demonstrated in the participation in the wars of Iraq and Afghanistan. A militarization of Danish foreign policy has taken place without much public debate, a fact that neither benefit the Danish foreign policy and security interests nor the solution of the international conflicts in which Denmark participates.

RIKO insists that Denmark, primarily should take on the role as intermediary and mediator between parties in international conflicts. With the membership of UN, NATO, the Nordic Council and the European Community, Denmark should – through pro-active and activist diplomacy – seek dialogue, exchange and other non-military conflict resolution methods.

The above should be the most prominent elements in the foreign policy behavior of Denmark and the guidelines for the Danish attitudes towards international matters.
