Background paper on the Ecopop Initiative

Dangerous for Swiss development cooperation

Background paper on the Ecopop InitiativeMMS Swiss citizens will vote about the so called ECOPOP-Initiative on 30th November 2014. It has two postulations: On the one hand the initiative intends to annually limit the migration in Switzerland to an average of 0.2%, and on the other hand it demands that 10% of the Swiss development cooperation budget will be earmarked for voluntary family planning. This background paper wants to inform you on that initiative as the second postulation of it touches our symposium’s theme. The board of the Network Medicus Mundi Switzerland as well as many member organisations clearly reject this initiative.
