    Abstract

    One of the major discussions of the 1990s has been about the relation between politics and administration. The themes of the discussions have been many and varied. It has been suggested that the level of politics should concentrate on the general political outlining and entrust the remaining to the administration. It has been criticised that politicians make their decisions on the basis of single cases, which ought to be an administrative matter entirely. It has been a theme that efficient operations can be created only by creating a clear difference between politics and administration. These questions have been raised in most of the OECD countries and the general headline given has been: “New Public Management.” The same situation appeared in Denmark, which provided the case on which this article is based.
