focusSecurity and Citizenship: Working Towards a New Paradigm A major challenge facing the world in the 21st century are the social changes associated with rapidly growing urban populations, poverty and rising social inequality. These dynamics pose specific security and social challenges, which need to be addressed now to avert crises in the near future. The rapid rate of twentieth century urbanisation means that many countries have struggled to keep pace with employment, education and social provision. In this context, innovative and cost effective responses become more and more necessary.

Acquisition by Brazilians of real estate property in Switzerland The right of foreigners to acquire real estate property in Switzerland is governed by Federal Law (local acronym LAIE) on acquisition of real estate property by "persons abroad", by a decree on application of this law (known as OAIE) and by circulars issued by the Federal Institute of Justice. In the case of Brazilians, the Federal Law on Foreigners (acronym LEtr) and related decrees also apply. Finally, local laws in each canton and municipality are also applicable.

Green buildings, better late than never! The green-building trend has finally reached Brazil. According to data from Green Building Council Brasil, the number of developments applying to the USGBC for certification in Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) is growing exponentially and the sustainable building trend is now on the global agenda. Businesses will have to catch up or become obsolete in the near future.
