These assessments provide an overview of threats to the Kingdom’s national security in relation to the six national security interests. The key objective of the Security Strategy for the Kingdom of the Netherlands is to protect our national security interests. Problems can increase when different threats occur at the same time.

The basis for this strategy is the Nationwide Risk Assessment (Rijksbrede Risicoanalyse, RbRa) and a complementary assessment of the impact of the war in Ukraine on the national security of the Netherlands. The assessments show that there is a high level of urgency: the likelihood of events affecting national security occurring in the coming years is relatively high.
