Policy-making in a number of Western European countries has for years been characterised by the integration and importance of organised interests (in general, Hayward 1995b). Whether these relations between state agencies and organised interests could be conceptualised as corporatism has been the subject matter of an intense debate. Some researchers assert that corporatism is dead (e.g. Lewin 1992, Schmitter 1989, Streeck and Schmitter 1991), and today most researchers seem to agree that the concept of policy-making networks is more useful in analysing policymaking processes in most Western European countries than is the concept of corporatism (e.g. Jordan and Schubert 1992). But whichever concept is chosen, organised interests still play an important role in Danish domestic and EU-related policy-making (Christiansen and Sidenius 1995, Bregnsbo and Sidenius 1993, Sidenius 1998).
