Labour law in Switzerland does not provide any paternity leave. Now Swiss voters must decide whether to introduce it.
In practical terms, what would it mean if fathers had time off work to devote to their children?
"It would be a first step which could change the whole social set-up,” says Davide Dosi of the popular initiative on paternity leave, soon up for a vote in Switzerland. He and his wife Arianna make their home in Chiasso, a Swiss community of 8,000 on the Italian border.
