BBC World Questions
Tuesday 04 September 2018 -
18:00 to 20:45

There is a small country on the edge of Northern Europe which is famous for exquisite design, fantastic pastries, high levels of tax and a generous welfare state. Denmark has a reputation for being one of the happiest places on the planet, but for many that moniker feels more like a myth. Immigration, integration, long-term joblessness and those high taxes have caused some Danes to question whether their country can afford to be as generous as it has been in the past. Others feel that new laws to 'ban the burka' and cuts to welfare have put the character of their nation on the line. 

The BBC's Jonathan Dimbleby will chair a panel of Denmark's leading politicians and opinion formers who will debate questions about Denmark's future from a public audience at the National Museum of Denmark. Join them and have your say in a debate that will be heard around the world.
