The Relationship between Equality, Responsibility and Negotiated Economy: a Study on the Principles of the Danish Health Care System

Guang Chen

Studenteropgave: Semesterprojekt


The main concern of this project is the paradox between the values and the health care expenditure policy in Denmark. Put concretely, it is the relationship between Negotiated Economy as the new approach to maintain equalities, and the health care expenditure cutbacks together with the service capacity shrink. Negotiated Economy is defined as an integration of Equality and Responsibility, which was used as the approach to contain public and health care expenditures in order to overcome economic recession. The aim of the project is to investigate whether Negotiated Economy is an approach which safeguards social equalities or deviates from it. Hopefully we can also learn about to what extent we can use it today and in the future, on account of economic fluctuation.
