Anders Fogh Rasmussen served as NATO’s Secretary General for five years. One of Europe’s most respected politicians he has been a key actor in European politics for three decades. Prior to leading the military and political alliance he served as both Prime Minster and Economics Minister in his native Denmark.

After completing his Masters in economics Anders entered the Danish parliament where he served in both cabinet and shadow cabinet positions. As Minister of Economics Affairs in the Conservative-Liberal coalition government he was a key member of the EU’s economic council and was part of the Maastricht Treaty negotiating team.

As Prime Minster he dealt with a number of controversial national issues including limits on immigration, tax cuts, the war in Iraq, local government reorganisation, as well as many EU matters.

Anders was NATO’s Secretary General for a period which spanned wars in Afghanistan and Iraq, and the Arab Spring uprisings. There were also a range of diplomatic issues including Russia’s increased hostility to the organisation and the post-financial crisis pressure on member states’ defence spending.
