Democracy in action

22nd October 2004 at 01:00
Switzerland and the UK have different but complementary traditions of free government. Exploring Democracy is an informative and well-designed resource pack for students at key stages 3 and 4 that fruitfully compares the two countries' institutions and practices. Twenty photocopiable worksheets and a teachers' guide provide facts and questions. We learn about the Swiss use of the referendum for dealing with issues like car-free Sundays or new nuclear plants, and we find out how voting methods affect the tensions between national, regional and local government.
