Who We Are
With the ever-changing global political and economic sphere, our view of security too must change. Globally there is an urgent call for peacekeeping, security, stability, counter-terrorism and counterinsurgency initiatives that seek to preserve life while protecting human rights.
Locally, non-lethal alternatives as a viable response to crime, peacekeeping efforts and security are no less important. There is a crucial need for non-lethal alternatives that prevent the loss of life and damage to infrastructure and property.
In placing emphasis on these alternatives, and continuous investment in research and development, Duke Defence hopes that the need to use lethal force will diminish.
