Week ahead Conflict resolution, cow horns and carbon capture

Here are some of the stories we'll be following the week of November 12:

 Switzerland will vote on November 25 whether to encourage farmers to let their cows keep their horns. We will be verifying the claim that bovines need their horns to communicate with each other.





 Switzerland is one of the world leaders in assisted suicide thanks to the services offered by organisations like Dignitas and LifeCircle. We look at the global impact of these institutions on making a case for legalising assisted suicide.





 The impact of climate change has not proved enough of a deterrent to reduce global carbon dioxide emissions to the extent necessary. We visit a Swiss carbon capture plant that offers a technological route to addressing the problem.
