Abstract
This study was the second part of a larger project on "active citizens". In the first part of the project, the political mobilization of Swiss citizens in the post-war period (1945-1978) was studies on the basis of political activation events. A total of 6000 events could be identified and described for this period. For this study, eight important and typical mobilization processes were selected:
1) "Union des producteurs suisses" - Opposition in the peasantry
2) "Jura question" as a minority minority conflict
3) Initiative for proportional representation initiated by the Junge CVP in the Valais
4) National strike of the Paper and Printing Union (1980)
5) Conflict about the Seestrasse in Richterswil
6) Mobilization in the educational domain: the Wiedikon case
7) Berne Declaration
8) Anti-nuclear movement
The "active citizens" of these various movements were asked about their political goals, motives and attitudes as well as about their political activities in a written questionnaire.
