English › Democracy
Denmark has not always been a democracy. Democracy in Denmark was introduced with the country's first Constitutional Act in 1849, and has thus developed over the past 160 years under the influence of events and political concepts and ideas from at home and abroad. Danish democracy has a great deal in common with democracies in other countries, but it also has its own characteristics. Further details about some of the central features of democracy in Denmark are available in the menu on the left.
