This is the first country report in the new yearbook. It outlines the different instruments of direct democracy in Switzerland. Some of these instruments, like the public initiative for a total revision of the constitution, have been around since the inception of the federal state in 1848. Others, like the public initiative for constitutional amendments (partial revisions) – being the most popular instrument of all – have been added later (1891). The report presents an outline of the different stages of public initiatives and lists all active initiatives within theses stages.
