In a new paper we explore how Swiss immigration and integration policies have developed in Switzerland between 1848 and 2014. The Swiss Political Science Review have done a marvellous job in getting this into print in a astonishing short time (share your experience at scirev…). Policies are covered in true MIPEX style, that is 7 policy areas and a total of 148 indicators. We recorded the situation at the national level for every year, and you can get the full data here.
