Studenteropgave: Semesterprojekt


This project explores how the Danish labour market is changing from a model in which workers, employers and the state negotiate the terms of the labour market and whether it is moving towards a more state-regulated entity. This change is explored from a European perspective, from a national perspective and from the perspective of the interaction between the two. The project identifies that the EU values the freedom of movement of workers on a higher hierarchical level than the right to conduct labour disputes. Paul Pierson's theory on historical institutionalism is used to analyse how this creates gaps of power that must be filled. Ernesto Laclaus post structuralist discourse theory will be used to analyse how Danish right-wing politicians are trying to construct a new frame of meaning around the Danish labour market. It is concluded that it is highly plausible that the Danish labour market indeed looks to be moving towards state-regulation, and it is explained how this process takes shape.
