Congress of the Swiss Abroad

The 98th Congress of the Swiss Abroad (Congrès des Suisses de l’étranger/ Auslandschweizer- Kongress) will be held in Lugano from 19 to 21 August. The themes are globalisation, migration, data protection, digitalisation, democracy, the rule of law, the Covid 19 pandemic, and possible future pandemics.

How is Switzerland’s democratic system responding to the current challenges? What is the need for reform? How can the country’s unique democratic system respond when increasingly exposed to supranational political, economic and financial forces?

Personalities from politics, business and science, discuss and reflect on these and many other questions.
