Copenhagen Institute is Denmark's first free market think tank, founded in 2003.
Copenhagen Institute's Vision
Copenhagen Institute aims to ensure that Denmark develops into one of the most innovative and dynamic growth societies in the world.
Copenhagen Institute's Mission
Copenhagen Institute works to promote individual liberty, a free market economy and the open society.
It does so by a targeted influencing of the public opinion, including policy makers, opinion leaders and other central decision makers. The influencing is done through media, events, publications and
Copenhagen Institutes seeks to change the focus of the public policy debate through a different approach to presenting free market solutions. This strategy is made in order to prevent backbone
reactions to new policy solutions. Copenhagen Institute therefore seeks to present all its initiatives in the context of:
- Responsibility & Opportunity.
- Innovation & Growth
- Security & Integrity
In regards to policy areas Copenhagen Institute focuses on the following:
- Tax & Welfare - Copenhagen Institute seeks to show the harmful effects of high taxes and illustrate new market based solutions to welfare issues.
- Health & Food - Copenhagen Institute seeks to show how increased regulations have a negative impact on public health.
- Competition & Regulation - Copenhagen Institute aims to illustrate the impact on innovation and growth of high levels of regulation, including competition legislation.
- Environment & Technology - Copenhagen Institute aims to secure a better policy debate in order to educate opinion leaders about how the environmental situation really is, and the benefits
of technological improvements.
Although Copenhagen Institute is focused on the national policy debate, the think tank sees a need for international collaboration in order to influence European decisions, which all have a
profound impact on Denmark.
For this reason Copenhagen Institute is a member of the Stockholm-Network, EIN (European Ideas Network - a pan-European network of thinkers and think tanks organized by the EPPE), and
collaborates with a number of other think tanks across Europe and the rest of the World.
