The Danish welfare state is, among other things, based on the concept of citizens having equal access to the different services paid for by taxes.

  • Everyone must be able to get help in situations, such as unemployment or illness.
  • All children must attend school and have the possibility of completing an education.
  • All citizens must have access to information and guidance (for example from libraries and media).
  • The public sector provides numerous services.

Please see our legal guide (in Danish) for further legal information.
