From a text about the benefits system (unemployment benefit etc) in Denmark: "un system qui offre des services universels, hors marche, sur la base des besoins" (the 'e' on marche has an acute accent). Thanks for any suggestions!

off market / back-of-the-market
Explanation:
I'd suggest *off market*, but this is what Termium gives: English:Laws of the Market (Economy) Stock Exchange back-of-the-market s CORRECT DEF - Refers to activity occurring outside of an established market, usually to hide something from those involved in the market. (Source: poultry section of the Commodity Co-ordination Directorate of Agriculture Canada). s

lit. outside of the market place


Explanation:
From the context given, I would suggest it means services that are not normally open/available to the marketplace, ie services that are over and above those currently being offered.
