Panel discussion with René Rhinow, Roger Blum and Laura Zimmermann
"The Swiss Confederation shall protect the liberty and rights of the people and preserve the independence and security of the country." So reads Article 2 of the Federal Constitution. In his professional and political career, former Council of States member René Rhinow has repeatedly dealt intensively with questions of democracy, the constitutional state and liberal values. What does freedom mean? What is social liberalism, what is sustainable liberalism? And to what extent is the concept of freedom at the heart of the democratic state? In "Freedom in Democracy," René Rhinow drafts a differentiated, forceful plea for a humane, contemporary liberalism in three studies.
