    c2d.unige.ch (C2D Institute at Uni GE)

  • politics (and democracy), economy and econometrics
    siaw.unisg.ch/kirch (SIAW Institute at Uni SG)

info about (iniatives &) referendums & elections in Switzerland:

  • federal and local - votez.ch - overviews, independent comments - aims to move more people in Switzerland to vote - a good, even excellent, site from Swiss point of view, alas in German only - more languages to come?

  • federal - search.admin.ch - search there (e.g. with 'abstimmung', you'll get documents in German about referendums on federal level)
