Danish practice regarding ethnic minorities is rather inconsistent and unco-ordinated. Danish practice at its best attempts to enhance the competence of the individual members of ethnic minority groups in order to equip them to participate more fully in Danish society. At its worst, Danish administration repudiates the special needs of ethnic minorities. In most circumstances, Denmark's official position is relatively tolerant and yet passive as to the fate of ethnic minorities. Assimilation is an almost irresistable pressure for tiny ethnic minorities in a largely homogeneous society when the following ingredients are combined: • the failure to officially acknowledge the existence of minorities as such; and • the foundation principle of Danish administration of the actual equality of all people and the concomitant obligation to treat all alike.
