This thesis explores the Danish pharmaceutical debate from 2010 – 2017 and sees to investigate how Danish interest groups seek influence on public policy related to pharmaceuticals. The investigation Is based in the topical question of resources and their influence on the distribution of power between interest groups and their ability to gain support for position in the policy area. The thesis is based on analysis of media appearance, representation in council and professional committees in relation to the administration of the Danish pharmaceutical area.
It is found that the interest groups seek influence through different areas: the parliamentary area, the administrative area and the media area. The thesis shows that interest groups with many resources are represented in all areas. The analysis also shows that there is no significate difference in coverage between the three Danish newspapers Politiken, Jyllands-Posten and Berlingske Tidende of the interest groups.
