  • Marlene WindEmail author


Everybody seems to love Denmark. Or do they? Well, if one managed to take a stroll in the center of Paris at Christmas time last year, the traditional stylish shopping mall Le BHV just across the old town hall celebrated a true Noel Danois. The French may have a special crush on Denmark as the country is going through a period of intense ‘Denmark-hype’ led by the dynamic young President Macron. He loves Danish TV-series, flexicurity, our social-liberal model – and not least the Danish Commissioner Margrethe Vestager who he sees as an obvious candidate to lead the next European Commission.
