IDN's vision is to become the main Portuguese centre for strategic thinking on national security and defence issues, through its research, training, debate and dissemination activities. It also aims to contribute to the development of a national culture of security and defence, assuming itself as a meeting platform between national security and defence institutions and society.

IDN is governed by a set of fundamental values: to guarantee diversity of thought and freedom of scientific research, to promote dialogue within society, to cultivate citizenship and public service ethics and to foster rigour and transparency in the pursuit of its activities.
