Personal profile


My research concerns danish governments in an organizational and historical perspective. I am particularly interested in the Prime Minister's Office, the relations within cabinet, the relations between the Prime Minister and the other cabinet members, cabinet committees and subjects related to these themes. My studies are primarily historical but with focus on the last 30 to 40 years. I use both quantitave and qualitative data and methods. For many years I have participated in the only ever research project on the Danish Prime Minister's Office. I have published several papers on Danish political history and a book on the contemporary history of the Danish Socialdemocratic Party.
