On Thursday morning, Denmark’s new prime minister, Mette Frederiksen, revealed the names of her cabinet members. Ane Halsboe-Jørgensen, 36 years old and originally from Fjerritslev in northern Jutland, joins the team as the new Minister for Higher Education and Science.

She was elected for the Social Democrats in northern Jutland’s electoral district in the parliamentary elections in 2011. She lives in southern Copenhagen and has an MSc in Political Science from Copenhagen University.

Ane Halsboe-Jørgensen published the book ‘It pays to invest in people’ (in Danish) in 2018 together with Pernille Rosenkrantz-Theil, who also got a ministerial position and will be the Minister for Children and Education. The book is about social investment, early intervention, the Ministry of Finance’s calculation models and the social economic investment model.

The book “questions the Ministry of Finance’s calculation models and offers suggestions on how we’ll recognize the value of welfare when we make our decisions in the future,” according to the authors.

Ane Halsboe-Jørgsensen writes on her website: “Education is the best way to ensure equal opportunities. Education is a path to freedom for the individual and a good investment for the whole community. Education is undoubtedly Denmark’s most important commodity.”

    Layoffs break the crucial trust between organisation and employee

    CBS is laying off a number of employees soon, which will affect our university in different ways. When employees are fired without having done anything wrong, it shatters the trust between the organisation and employees, while also taking a toll on productivity, according to a CBS expert. Layoffs also affect the ‘survivors’, who are forced to adapt to a changed workload and the loss of cherished colleagues.
