National Defence Foundation is a non-governmental organization which has a goal to enhance Lithuania's national security through the support of democratic processes in Lithuania and the region. One of our activities is to deliver strategic insights, assessments and recommendations to Lithuanian and foreign non-governmental institutions and policy makers. We believe it is very important to enlighten our society, politicians, governmental and non-governmental institutions about the threats that the region is facing.
