YATA Denmark’s Research is dedicated to briefing all audiences, from students to experts, on current international security matters. We seek to filter through all forms of information to deliver accurate analyses while promoting democracy, rule of law and peace.

In a world of fear, division, and violence, many forget what security feels like. While some have the fortune of being raised accustomed to living in a secure environment far from conflict, others are born into some of the most brutal conditions that exist in our world. At the same time, communication and globalization have evolved at an unprecedented speed, allowing an increasing number of people access to a vast ocean of knowledge.

However, this grand excess of information has made it difficult to filter accurate and most relevant information. YATA Denmark’s Research Project works to promote international security and peace by filtering through all forms of information to accurately brief the global citizen of world issues.

When striving for a liberal democracy, freedom of thought and expression are often seen as important as the right to life. Freedom of thought and expression give the right to one’s own articulation and, therefore, the right to oneself.

The protection of this right is essential to maintaining a free and just society where people can feel truly secure. The significance of this right is highlighted in writings across the world, whether it’s protected under the First Amendment of the United States Constitution, or under Section 2 of the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms, or ultimately by Article 18 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, where it clearly states that:

“Everyone has the right to freedom of thought, conscience and religion; this right includes freedom to change his religion or belief, and freedom, either alone or in community with others and in public or private, to manifest his religion or belief in teaching, practice, worship and observance.”

Even in the 21st century, suppression of speech, censorship of information and the cultivation of misinformation has led to the misguided daily education that citizens receive. In response to these circumstances, an increasing number of journalists and academics have fought against this inflation of misinformation even in the face of personal risk. Take for instance, the three journalists in Gambia who were recently arrested by national security services on unspecified charges. Likewise, Denis Sinyakov, another journalist and former Reuters photographer,  was arrested by Russian forces during his expedition in the Pechora sea as part of the Arctic protest with Greenpeace on the charges of piracy.

Due to political and corporate interests, censorship, misleading channels of information and suppression that prevail in the world, it takes great effort to find and broadcast accurate information. In the midst of this chaos, YATA Denmark’s Researchers are dedicated to informing all audiences, from political experts to global citizens, on current international affairs. This dedication stems from YATA’s values of promoting international order, security and peace; we believe that as a global citizen, it is your right to know.

YATA Denmark Research Project was founded in early 2017 by Demyan Plakhov and further developed by Jon Reinhardt-Larsen from June 2017 to June 2018. The Research Project is the first of its kind in YATA International history and publishes well-researched journalistic style articles dedicated to providing key insight on all aspects of international security. The Research Project gained global outreach within months as people from more than 60 nations viewed the project’s content; from New Zealand to Canada, from Argentina to Laos, from South Africa to Norway.
