Not Danelaw, but Danish law!
Danelaw was the Danish kingdom that was established in England in the Middle Ages. We are talking about Danish law now. Modern-day Danes can actively take part in the production of new laws. Only recently the new citizens’ agenda initiative, called “Borgerforslag” was established in the country. It literally means “Citizens’ proposal” and enables any Dane to initiate and sign a new law proposal. If it gets support by more than 50.000 fellow Danes, then it gets to the Parliament for review. This is another example of crowdsourced law-making. Research shows that active participation in the public agenda helps build trust between them and the state, the government and the politicians. And when people feel trust and trusted, their level of happiness goes up.
