Social Europe in world economy, based on employment and equal chances for everybody, is the main aim of the reformed Lisbon Agenda. Danish response to the challenges of the 21st century has become a model of 'FLEXICURITY' that combines flexibility and security in social sphere. Its effectiveness is determined by the harmony between a good economic situation, an appropriately constructed education system and a flexible labour market where, although the protection against the dismissal is no great, but the social system guarantees an ample protection of the unemployed. All this contributes to the success of the Danish model defined as the 'social remedy' for the European Union.
