Karen EllemannAs a result of this week's major government reshuffle in Denmark, the post of Minister for Nordic Co-operation has been reallocated. Experienced minister Bertel Haarder has been replaced by Karen Ellemann, who is also in charge of Danish environmental policy.

"I'm happy to be taking on this role, and I am especially keen to find common solutions to the big challenges presented by globalisation for the Nordic countries," says Ellemann. The daughter of the famous Nordic veteran politician Uffe Ellemann-Jenseni, Ellemann was first voted into Parliament in 2007. A educated teacher, Ellemann has been heavily involved in the Danish Liberal Party's integration and family policies.
