Intégration et régulation : la crise politique à Lausanne

Abstract : From the early 1970s till the late 1980s, the city of Lausanne, Switzerland, experienced a political crisis because part of its population was inadequately represented. As a result, successive municipal decisions were blocked by référendums. Consequently, doubt arose about the municipal executive's reliance on the idea of consensus as a fundamental principle of government. Relations between the administration and executive changed ; and the political line-up was modified between the Socialist and bourgeois parties. The description and analysis of this crisis serves as the basis for reflexion about how politics works as a regulator and source of legitimation in the Swiss system, characterized as it is by «societal corporatism».
