Direct Democracy Databases

The heart of the C2D is an electronic database on direct democracy in Switzerland, Europe and the world. This database contains information on the institutions (referendum and popular initiative) of direct democracy as well as on their use in popular votes.

The database was built up during the time the C2D was located at the University of Geneva (1993-2007), namely with the generous support of the Law Faculty, the Rector's Office and the Swiss National Science Foundation. We would like to thank all involved parties and researchers for their support and dedication.
