This country report analyzes the narrow success (50.3% Yes) of the Mass-Immigration- Initiative that will, if properly implemented, violate the bilateral treaties between Switzerland and the European Union and, thereby, perhaps trigger the end of this form of cooperation. The report also goes into the current discussion about the reform of direct democratic instruments, e.g., by raising the signature threshold for public initiatives. During the report year there was a remarkable"partial" invalidation of an initiative. In the long history of modern Switzerland, i.e., since the inception of the federal state in 1848, there have been only four invalidations of public initiatives and never before has the parliament decided for a part of an initiative to be struck out of the voting process.
