(p.172) Chapter 5 The Nature of Negotiation in Denmark
The National Origins of Policy Ideas

This chapter discusses how a war of ideas subsided in Denmark after the mid-1980s. This was due to the fact that the Danes perceived what was described as a crisis of ideology among the political parties as the Golden Age faded away. Policymakers and others realized that the old ideological battles between the left and the right were counterproductive and that thinking based on objective empirical analysis should guide policymaking in order to resolve the economic malaise that first beset Denmark in the 1970s. Given the state's presence in the knowledge regime and the extensive system of corporatist negotiations that permeate this society, the interpenetration and lack of separation among knowledge, policymaking, and production regimes is extensive although diminishing slowly. Thus, the Danish knowledge regime is an example of an increasingly centralized and planned response to the perceived breakdown of the knowledge regime's institutional complementarity, but one that involved much negotiation and consensus making.

Keywords:   Denmark, ideology, ideological battles, corporatist negotiations, Danish knowledge regime, consensus making
