Swiss Identity – Am I a “real” Swiss ?
What does it mean to be Swiss ?
Are some Swiss “more genuinely Swiss” than others ?
I’ve been a bit peeved from the beginning with the feeling that the Swiss born in a foreign land ( I started my life in Rio, Brasil), and who returned to live in Switzerland after spending a large portion of their childhood in a foreign country, were somehow second-hand citizens and not “real Swiss” !
I have a feeling the countries with ex-colonies take far better care, and have much more consideration for their “foreign” countrymen.
Is this true ?
What could be our role in this globalized world and in and for Switzerland ? (Les expatriés, ces visages de la mondialisation )
Here are some documents about a proposed law for the Swiss living in foreign countries – “Pour une loi sur les Suisses de l’étranger“.
Should there be a special law for the Swiss living abroad (5th Swiss – 5ième Suisse) ?

Hey Laser thanks!
Sorry for the delay but I am essentially a complete beginner in the blogging world, and have set up my blog in my domain with all the complications that entails as to the choice of plugins for wordpress etc…
For some reason you where in the spam section so I only found you now. There is certainly a problem with my plugins!
Thanks in anycase for the encouragements!
