Expat course on Denmark

Understanding the Danes and their culture

For expats who would like to know more about the connection between the making of modern Denmark and Danish culture today.

Denmark is a strange, little country. An island kingdom, far away from the center of Europe. An agricultural country, having gone through a fairly rapid industrialization. A former naval and trading power turned into a small, very homogenous nation.

This session will cover historical developments leading up to the current society, business structure and special Danish cultural traits, values and norms. The course also covers current events, media and politics.

The goal of the course is to give the participants an initial understanding of, why Denmark is the way it is, Danes the way they are, and an interest in current events in Denmark.
