Abstract
The project is based on a project of the Ecole des Sciences Criminelles of the University of Lausanne, which compiled a database in the French-speaking part of Switzerland of all homicides and 10% of suicide cases in Switzerland between 1980 and 2001. Our project now extends the database nationwide. It includes 100% of homicide cases in Switzerland and 10% of suicides. Included were homicides, which fall under the art. 111-116 StGB.
The aim of the project is to investigate homicides and suicides in Switzerland. Data were collected at the Institutes for Forensic Medicine in Switzerland, and completed when necessary with the police and judiciary.
