Synopsis

Denmark is regarded by many as a model European country. In a short space of time unemployment rates have more than halved, inflation has remained low and the welfare state has not only been consolidated but improved. A new policy-mix has proved to be effective, but what exactly does it entail?



This path-breaking book provides an historical, systematic analysis of Danish policy developments, taking a critical, post-positivist approach. It highlights the internal lines of conflict but also demonstrates the co-operative nature of Danish decision-makers. The author describes and explains the individual policy-style evident in several different arenas including the economy, the labour market, health, education, agriculture and modernisation. The analysis shows that much can be learned and applied from the Danish policy making and implementation experiences. Providing a comprehensive overview of the Danish welfare system, the author demonstrates that although Denmark may not have realised `the third way', it has in fact found its own unique way.



Henning Jorgensen not only provides an accurate account of what lies behind the consensual policy style in Denmark, but also offers an insight into areas of disharmony and the strategies for eventual resolution. This book is strongly recommended for all scholars and students of public policy and political science.
