In many respects, Switzerland is both a model example of a functioning democracy and also a special case. In this study, Adrian Vatter not only explains Switzerland’s most important political institutions, such as consociationalism, direct democracy and federalism, but also its electoral system and judiciary, into which little research has been conducted so far. He analyses Switzerland’s political system by comparing it to those of other countries and examines how it has evolved from a federal majoritarian system since the foundation of the federal state into an increasingly polarised consensus democracy at the beginning of the 21st century. In this completely updated second edition, Vatter not only examines Switzerland’s last parliamentary and government elections in 2015 but also its most recent national referendums.
