The Kingdom of Denmark is a constitutional monarchy with democratic, parliamentary rule. A prime minister, usually the leader of the largest party of a multiparty coalition, is head of government and presides over the cabinet, which is accountable to a unicameral parliament (Folketing). The kingdom includes Greenland and the Faroe Islands, which are autonomous with similar political structures and legal rights. Observers deemed national elections to be free and fair. The government had mechanisms in place to identify and punish officials who may commit human rights abuses or engage in corruption.

The overall score indicates that there are low risks of potential human rights violations in this country. Still, violations of human rights can always happen. This may also include the tourism sector.

For better comparability, we have converted the original scores of the indices to a uniform scale of 1-100 (1 most negative, 100 most positive).

In the following table you find these recalculated values and the original score in brackets behind them.
