What are the challenges for our democracy?

Globalisation, migration, data protection, increasing digitalisation, exercising political rights, ensuring the rule of law, the Covid-19 pandemic and possible future pandemics: how is the democratic system of Switzerland reacting to the current challenges? Where does it need to reform? How can we ensure Switzerland's unique democratic basis is preserved as we are exposed to increasingly supranational political, economic and financial forces?

Personalities from the fields of politics, economics and science will try to provide answers or reflections on these and many other questions.
