Arguments

 

For better work conditions for researchers

Nowadays in Switzerland, most contracts for researchers have a limited duration, and precarious positions are becoming ever more commonplace. This policy is forcing some people to give up on an academic career and is harmful to the quality of research. It is therefore urgent to favour stable contracts, even for young researchers.


For a high level research

Despite women representing the majority of students in Swiss academic institutions, they constitute a minority in research positions. This situation must imperatively be addressed, and an ambitious policy of promoting women must be introduced. In a broader context, academic institutions must function in a democratic manner, and include all concerned persons in the decisions that will affect them.


For equality

The autonomy of the High Schools not only means that they must be free to accommodate the research scientists and researchers who work there want to drive there, but that these institutions operate democratically by combining the decisions all the people they will affect. Integrating students in this respect is a necessary condition for the democratic functioning of the academic institutions.


For democratic institutions

The autonomy of the academic institutions not only means that they must be free to accommodate the research scientists and researchers who work there want to drive there, but that these institutions operate democratically by combining the decisions all the people they will affect. Integrating students in this respect is a necessary condition for the democratic functioning of the academic institutions.


For a cooperative research

Search dies of unbridled competition between those who make it. Instead, it has always advanced through cooperation and collaboration of scientists and researchers, in networks as extensive as possible. That research is a collective adventure, it’s also orient differently the choice of people who will be asked to lead it into the future.


For everyone to end his thesis

The Phd student are researchers in their own right, whose work should be recognized and working conditions arranged in such a way that the essential exercise of thesis is done in the best possible environment. That are the conditions that thesis at Swiss academic institution will be completed. We ask in particular Phd student receive a salary for at least six years.
