Suisse-UE: Le Conseil fédéral et les partenaires sociaux rejettent l’initiative de limitation

Le Conseil fédéral et les partenaires sociaux rejettent l’initiative de limitation


Berne, 22.06.2020 – La population suisse votera le 27 septembre 2020 sur l’initiative populaire “Pour une immigration modérée (initiative de limitation)”. L’initiative exige la fin de la libre circulation des personnes avec l’UE. Son acceptation aurait des conséquences graves pour l’emploi et la prospérité en Suisse – juste au moment où l’économie a besoin de stabilité et de perspectives. Lors d’une conférence de presse le 22 juin 2020, la conseillère fédérale Karin Keller-Sutter et des représentants des partenaires sociaux se sont prononcés pour un non à cette initiative. La votation était initialement prévue pour le 17 mai, mais elle avait dû être reportée en raison de la pandémie.

I usually dislike name-dropping and the hype around certain media stars…

… but I share very much what Jeffrey Sachs says in this interview about inclusion and sustainability…and it applies not only to the US …but also Europe, and even Switzerland. – 30 minutes well invested, especially if you take action !

Sind Schweizer Juristen für die Globalisierung gewappnet?

Neue Publikation: Sind Schweizer Juristen für die Globalisierung gewappnet? Ziegler Andreas R., 08/06/2020. Jusletter

Internationale Aspekte spielen heute eine immense Rolle in der Tätigkeit der meisten Juristen. Entsprechend ist die Kenntnis, wie man mit diesen Aspekten umgeht, von fundamentaler Wichtigkeit für die zielführende und qualitativ hochstehende Ausbildung von Juristen. In der Schweiz bestehen immense Unterschiede zwischen den vermittelten Inhalten und Fähigkeiten («Skills») (Teil III) an den Ausbildungsstätten und in den unterschiedlichen Programmen (Teil IV). Gewisse Institutionen sollten dringend ihre Minimalanforderungen überdenken (Teil V).
