The OECD Development Assistance Committee (DAC) conducts periodic reviews of the individual development co-operation efforts of DAC members. The policies and programmes of each member are critically examined approximately once every five years. DAC peer reviews assess the performance of a given member, not just that of its development co-operation agency, and examine both policy and implementation. They take an integrated, system-wide perspective on the development co-operation and humanitarian assistance activities of the member under review.



Context of the peer review of Denmark

From 2011-15, Denmark was governed by a centre-left coalition led by the Social Democrats alongside the Social Liberal Party and the Socialist People’s Party. The June 2015 general election brought back the previous Liberal Prime Minister, Mr Lars Løkke Rasmussen, as the leader of a minority one-party Liberal government, with the support of three centre-right parties – the Danish People’s Party, the Liberal Alliance and the Conservative People’s Party. This election was the tightest contest in decades and produced Denmark’s smallest single party minority government since the mid-1970s.
