Digital Sovereignty in Switzerland : the laboratory of federalism

Published inRisiko & Recht, no. 1, p. 65-101
Publication date2023

This paper analyses the issues of digital sovereignty in Switzerland, particularly from a socio-economic and legal standpoint. It aims to contribute to the general debate on digital sovereignty in Switzerland and abroad, including on a Swiss cloud. Beyond Switzerland, the specificities of the Confederation (federalism and distributed competencies) make its ecosystem an interesting laboratory for digital sovereignty. This analysis follows a complete multidisciplinary study carried out within the framework of the Latin Conference of Digital Directors (CLDN), based on desk research and interviews.
