Direct democracy is an integral part of Swiss democracy. For this reason, our research to a large part focuses on issues of direct democracy on the federal, cantonal and municipal levels. The ZDA collects data on elections and referendums in Switzerland and studies the effectiveness of popular initiatives as well as the implementation of successful popular initiatives.
