Denmark: Strengthened opposition, yet high levels of cooperation

Publikation: Bidrag til bog/antologi/rapportBidrag til bog/antologiForskningpeer review


Opposition parties are prominent in Danish parliamentary politics. This is due to the high frequency of minority governments that need external support to remain in offi ce and pass legislative initiatives. As a small open economy, inte-grated into the European Union, Denmark is also affected by the driving forces that appear to have spurred populist opposition in most of the Western world. Denmark was strongly affected by the global fi nancial crisis (GFC) that set on with the fall of Lehman Brothers in September 2008. The country experienced a historical 5 per cent drop in GDP in 2009 and recession the following years ( Andersen, 2012 ; Stubager et al., 2013 ).
