Esperanza - “Hope” - was the promising name of the town where Swiss emigration to Argentina got its start. Hopeful indeed were the many Swiss who settled in the city from 1857, fleeing the hardship and despair of their homeland. In fact, this is where the long and turbulent history of Swiss emigration to Argentina began. In the following years, these movements would incessantly grow and even have an influence on the Swiss-Argentinian relationship at the highest levels of government.
Mass protests, street battles, and human rights violations: what began as a peaceful protest against planned pension reforms by the government of Daniel Ortega was brutally broken up by Nicaraguan security forces, triggering a fatal spiral of violence that has led to the deaths of over 300 people.

The annual analysis for 2018 provides an overview of current and emerging points of conflict and offers an assessment of their development. This issue focuses on the Middle East with its rivals Iran and Saudi Arabia, who both seek to control the region. Tensions are expected in Europe as well, however: Poland is rubbing its citizens and the EU up the wrong way with its policies. A look at Latin America shows that the coming months will be decisive for Brazil: elections will take place this year, all while investigations into the Petrobras scandal continue and some regions struggle with growing financial concerns. The annual analysis cannot claim to be comprehensive. Rather, it is intended to provide assistance to Soliswiss members, travelers and Swiss citizens abroad as well as highlight developments.
