This paper deals with the cross field between politics and factuality that legislative commissions find themselves amongst. The paper examines the two commissions: Velfærdskommissionen and Arbejdsmarkedskommissionen, to reach a deeper understanding, from the commission members’ viewpoint, of the policy-process those commissions stir through. The study focuses on the members’ experience of forming legislative policy, thus the throughput that leads to output. Furthermore, the paper seeks to give an overview of the similarities and differences between the two commissions, to extract a more comprehensive understanding of the structure and tasks for legislative commissions. The paper analyses upon central factors, in which the policy propositions the commissions give, will be legislated. The paper concludes, that to implement legislation that reforms welfare benefits, a government must use a justification strategy combined with blame avoidance strategy, when there a ‘window of opportunity’ occur. Many of commissions’ propositions have been implemented some time after the release of commissions’ reports, due to the use of blame avoidance strategy.
