In this master thesis, I am investigating what there is evidence for, has a positive effect in the Danish Local government’s preventing policies, judged from a competition state perspective. The thesis has a historical institutionalist frame, which sees the competition state as a development in the valid institutional rules. The policies are therefore judged by how well they accomplish the goals, which the competition state has with its policies: to reform the welfare state in order to perform better in the international competition. Therefore the policies are judged by how they contribute to allocative efficiency and comparative advantages. In this thesis there is an evidence focus, which means that there must be evidence supporting the effects a certain policy has, in order for it to be included in the analysis. The knowledge that is produced, is therefore a knowledge that is valid in a competition state framework. The result of the thesis, is that there is a varied amount of evidence in the policies described in the included reports, but there are reports where there is solid evidence for results that has a positive effect, seen from a competition state perspective.
