We illustrate changing security dispositifs in three concrete public places in Switzerland. The cases are the St. Jakob Stadion in Basel, the Bundesplatz in Bern and the main trainstation in Zürich: Zürich HB. The project was initially planned to be a comparative study of a total of nine actual public places in three countries. We have held a number of qualititative interviews with all relevant actors involved in the places and their security in one way or the other. For the purpose of the first publication which made its way to the Swiss yearly Security Bulletin we have focussed our analysis on the swiss places. Nevertheless a follow up meeting in Zürich left me happy to conclude that together with the co-author Jonas Hagmann from the CSS we will continue working on the project and try to gain funding for the initially planned comparative case study.
