 EMU: A Danish Delight and Dilemma

Show Summary Details


Investigates the various ways in which Danish policies have adjusted towards EMU. The process of adaptation has taken place gradually and almost unnoticed by the broader population. Although the European issue has been widely discussed in Denmark since the early 1970s, issues such as capital liberalization, the Europeanization of corporatism, and of the Social Democratic Party, and the emergence of an ideational elite consensus about the ‘sound policy’ paradigm have not been on the public agenda. The public debates have been about narrow economic benefits resulting from European integration, not about visions for the national and European polities.
