Summary
The Swiss consensus democracy model has been <U+0127> � and remains <U+0127> � under pressure. While being a non-EU member, Switzerland is heavily influenced by European integration and exemplifies some of the crucial changes at work on the continent. Based on a rich collection of data covering the 11 most important Swiss decision-making processes in recent years, this book highlights these changes and related variations across policy domains. It examines Europeanization as a major driving factor in the strengthening of bureaucratic policy-making, and charts the decline of corporatist policy-making and reinforcement of partisan politics as a result of institutional reforms, mediatization, higher polarization among social partners and the rise of a populist right wing party. Switzerland has moved away from the ideal-type of consensus. Coalitions have become more unstable and policy outputs less predictable, yet this may be good news in terms of innovation.--
