Cutting out the middleman : a case study of blockchain-induced reconfigurations in the Swiss financial services industry

Witzig, Pascal ; Salomon, Victoriya

Fast-Tracking Full Citizenship in the Context of the Swiss Integration Stage Model

Kurt, Stefanie

(nccr on the move ; 15)

In 2014, the Federal Assembly adopted the new Swiss Citizenship Act, which will enter into force on the 1st of January 2018. One of the missions of this Act is to align the pre-conditions for Swiss Citizenship with the Swiss integration stage model, a controversial move by the Federal Assembly that tightens the rules for access to citizenship and consequently narrows the space of cantonal...

Riaño Alcala, Yvonne ; Lombard, Annique ; Piguet, Etienne

Since the 1990s, Swiss immigration policies have placed more restrictions on non-EU nationals living and working in Switzerland.

How can this policy openness in...

Globalisation postindustrielle et milieux locaux : une typologie

Guex, Delphine ; Crevoisier, Olivier

(Working Papers MAPS ; 1)

Dans la société industrielle, le développement des régions dépendait de leur insertion dans la globalisation par la production, de leur positionnement dans la division du travail : c’est la compétitivité. Désormais, la globalisation se joue également au niveau de la consommation. Cette dimension est abordée dans la littérature, par exemple par Markusen (Markusen, 2007; Markusen &...

The Determinants of Naturalization in Switzerland between 2010 and 2012

Wanner, Philippe ; Loretan, Alicia

(nccr on the move ; 13)

Naturalization is an important phenomenon for countries, not only because of its implications (it grants duties and rights to new citizens) but also because of its policy-sensitive aspect. In Switzerland, it is also a complex phenomenon because of the diversity of procedures at the canton and commune levels. Knowledge of the determinants of naturalization is still lacking. In this context, this...

State’s Discretion and the Challenge of Irregular Migration – the Example of Permanent Regularization Practices in Spain and Switzerland

Della Torrel, Lucia

(nccr on the move ; 12)

In the heated debate around irregular migration, the so-called regularization measures represent one of the main bones of contention – presented by some as the only possible solution to irregular presences and contested by others as rewards for illicit behaviour. Despite their many differences, such measures have a common core – discretion. They are, in fact, gracious concessions of the State...

Auer, Daniel

(nccr on the move ; 11)

The labour market integration of refugees represents a key challenge for policy makers and has emerged as one of the most divisive topics in public debate. European countries have been pressured to establish fair and transparent methods of placing asylum seekers among the European states and into different regions within their national borders. In this paper, I highlight the unsurprising yet...
