Dispositifs de la politique sociale en Suisse

The Swiss State is a highly developed federalist structure. The subsidiary principle, according to which the Confederation can only act on the basis of a competence that the Constitution expressly recognises as its own (presumption of competences benefiting the cantons), defines the duties of the Confederation and the cantons. The cantons enjoy a high degree of responsibility in fiscal and educational matters as well as in some social policy and sanitary areas. With regards to social policy, the Confederation is responsible for the main pillars of social security (old age insurance, unemployment insurance, etc.).
Cantons remain deeply involved when it comes to finance or to the implementation of most of the programmes. Thus, for instance, social welfare is administrated by a federal law, its application depends on the cantons which, very often, delegate the organisation of social welfare to the local authorities. The implementation of social welfare can vary from one canton to another and even from one town to another.
