On the basis of the Dagpengereform of 2010, we investigate the effects of the institutional econom-ic sense, upon the design of Danish labour market policy. The investigation of the Dagpengereform ought to exemplify a general tendency within the decision-making process of the Danish labour market policy. The study is based upon Ove K. Pedersen’s, professor at Copenhagen Business School, theoretical depiction of the government’s development from a welfare-state to that of a competitive state. In determining whether this development affects the organisation of labour market policy – and the influence of labour market political interest groups – we execute an empirical study hereof. In conclusion, we find that the economic sence has caused the government’s economic governance to be confined by a European framework, encompassing restrictions with regard to the Danish gov-ernment debt levels. Thus, the Dagpengereform is utilised as an economic governance instrument and – as a result hereof – the influence of labour market political interest groups has been somewhat reduced.
