Denmark review[edit]

Under the constitution, Denmark, Greenland and the Faroes constitute three constituent parts of a single unitary State. Under their respective home rule acts, Greenland and the Faroes declared themselves "self-governing territories" within this state, which altered the nature of the state but did not alter the constitution.

  • "After the introduction of the democratic Constitution in 1849, the Danish Parliament unilaterally extended the Constitution to the Faroe Islands...the Faroese found that they had been incorporated into another people's nation state." "Greenland continued to be ruled as a colony until it was integrated into Denmark in a revision of the Danish Constitution in 1953." (Council of Europe, 1996, p104–105)
  • "The two measures of home rule...have made an illusion of the unitary State, and that Denmark today is a new kind of State construction, a "rigsfællesskabet", a form of commonwealth. Or, as Dr. [Frederik] Harhoff puts it: "...a tripartite community of separate and autonomous parts, each with their own original powers, but with continental Denmark as the hegemonical part with residual authority." (Council of Europe, 1996, p107)
  • "Greenland in 1953 was named an administrative district rather than a colony. But historically as well as a matter of state theory, 'Denmark' is a more ambiguous concept than we generally allow. 'This constitution applies to all parts of the Danish realm,' article 1 of the Constitution affirms. Thus, the Danish state comprises several parts, bound together by a common constitution. What this unity means, what the units are, and how the connections should be understood is less clear from the legalese. For an indication, one must consult the drafts... Page 28 states that the 'Danish Realm' comprises three parts: Denmark, the Faroe Islands, and Greenland. Article 3 of the Constitution defines a common legislative, executive, and judicial branch for these three parts of the Danish kingdom." (Østergård, 2002)
  • "Clearly, it is hard to classify Greenland's status within Denmark. Formally, it is an integral part of a unitary state with autonomous authority in a limited number of areas." (Loukacheva, 2007, p44)

So should we merge Kingdom of Denmark into Denmark? Rennell435 (talk) 13:48, 11 December 2011 (UTC)

  • HELL NO. The merge of Kingdom of Denmark into Denmark is THE worst merge in the wikipedia history. By contrast, the Dutch wikipedia community did not merger Kingdom of the Netherlands into Netherlands. They seem to understand that both political entities are different and there is a need for two separate articles, instead of one. (talk) 10:58, 16 April 2013 (UTC)
