It also affects the multilateral system as a whole.

Other Geneva based organisations are publishing reports on the initial eco-nomic consequences of the crisis. In the meantime, high-profile multilateral meet-ings in Geneva have been cancelled.

A green wave, surprises, and a key role for the Christian Democrats

The Swiss parliamentary elections of 20 October 2019

Switzerland was hit by a “green wave” more strongly than expected in the parliamentary elections of 20 October: both the Green Party and the Green Liberal Party achieved histori-cally good results. These came at the expense of Switzerland’s four largest traditional par-ties. The Christian Democrats (CVP) came out of the elections relatively unharmed. In the new parliament, the party will be granted a more pivotal role than has previously been the case.

Developments in the Geneva-based international organizations between May and July 2019

Over the last few months, diplomats as well as staff members of international organizations in Geneva were kept on the move: in the occasion of the 100th anniversary of the foundation of the International Labour Organization (ILO), numerous heads of states and governments came to Geneva. In addition, several high ranking meetings and conferences took place, such as the annual World Health Assembly (WHA) and the 41st session of the UN Human Rights Council. Reports on the future of world trade (WTO), on land use and climate change (IPCC, „World Climate Council“) as well as on global refugee trends were looking at the future with concern.

Crises, controversies, „milestones“

The 72nd World Health Assembly (WHA) from May 20th to 28th 2019 in Geneva

The 72nd World Health Assembly (WHA) took place from May 20th to 28th, 2019 in Geneva against the background of diverse developments: on the one hand, positive developments in Universal Health Cov-erage and in fighting against diseases like malaria, on the other hand, the smoldering Ebola crisis in the DR Congo is a matter of concern. In addition, there were a number of controversial debates, among others on the resolution on the transparency of prices for medical and health products. Some (geo) political conflicts cast their shadows on the discussions during the WHA.

Die Schweiz vor der Wahl

Status quo oder grüne Welle?

Am 20. Oktober stimmen die Schweizer über die Zusammensetzung der beiden Kammern des Eidgenössischen Parlaments ab. Tektonische Verschiebungen sind nicht zu erwarten. Zu beobachten wird sein, inwieweit Grüne und Grünliberale von der auch in der Schweiz zunehmenden Klimadebatte profitieren und ob die SVP nach ihrem Rekordergebnis von 2015 die allgemein erwarteten Einbußen hinnehmen muss. Den Christdemokraten der CVP werden in den Umfragen – wie allen bürgerlichen Parteien – leichte Verluste prognostiziert.
