Study visit from Serbia on direct democracy

Direct Democracy in Switzerland – How does that look like in practice? This question is at the heart of the conversations that a delegation from Serbia will have with a series of experts from Swiss institutions and organisations during their visit to Bern and Biel, from 17 to 21 June. Headed by Mr. Saša Mogic, Assistant Minister in the Serbian Ministry of Public Administration and Local Self-Government, the delegation from the ministry as well as the Standing Conference of Serbian Towns and Municipalities will reflect on the Swiss experience with a view to developing instruments of direct democracy for their own political system. The program will provide opportunities for discussing a variety of aspects of direct democracy at the federal, cantonal and municipal level.
