Unemployment Insurance Commission

The Danish government has set down a Commission of five experts, including me, and four representatives for the social partners to examine the unemployment insurance scheme. In particular we have been tasked to examine how the system:

* can remain a central part of the Danish social welfare model and the flexicurity model in the labour market

* become more compatible with a modern labour market

* can be simplified and de-bureaucratised

* and how the system can become more robust in a more integrated European labor market

We have 1.5 years – stay tuned:)
