Helle Krunke is a professor of constitutional law. She is a member of the EU reform group under the Danish Parliament’s European Affairs Committee, and helps to ensure that Danish politicians have real influence on EU legislation. This gives Denmark a say, so that we can reduce air pollution, handle overconsumption of plastic or ban allergenic chemicals from beauty products.
