This country report focuses on the discussion about the increasing frequency and success rate of public initiatives in Switzerland. It finds that the chance of success has significantly increased during the past 10 years. Most of this effect is due to the use of the Internet for direct democratic instruments. Regarding specific initiatives, the report looks into the practice of correcting results by repeated voting. Finally, the variations in the participation rate in direct democracy are quite striking. Due to the late introduction of women's voting rights on the federal level (1971), there still is a "lost generation" of women who never got used to democratic participation.
