The Danish social welfare model has helped place Denmark solidly among the leading countries in the Western world.
Social Welfare — The Danish Model charts the dynamics between the public sector, the businesssector and the civil sector. These are the three main actors in the continued negotiations about the Danish model; it is through their agreement (and disagreement) that new and improved versions ofthe model emerge in support of the country’s progress and competitive advantage. And – not least – in support of a society that is a decent society for all.
