Among the other topics, this year the discussion at the camp were about NATO's mission since its beginnings, NATO enlargement and the Western Balkans, the new challenges of the 21stcentury, as well as the relation between NATO and the EU.

DAYS 2011 is an international youth seminar organized by the Danish Atlantic Association. This year the seminar was held in the period 4th – 11th July in Aalborg, Denmark under the topic "NATO: The Challenges of the New Decade". During the seminar, the professors from different European universities, the experts and the participants had an excellent opportunity to participate in the debates about the new threats that face NATO, the Arab Spring, as well as NATO's New Strategic Concept. Except the debates, the participants had a unique chance of being part of the three-day simulation on the topic "South Caucasus" and to demonstrate their leadership capabilities, as well as sharing different experiences and acquiring knowledge.
