The World Economic Forum will meet in Davos Jan. 23-28, and Swiss authorities are confident they can maintain order by permitting peaceful demonstrations and guarding against agitators interested in prompting violence. For the meeting two years ago demonstrations were prohibited, access to the center city was blocked, and even train schedules were changed to prevent protesters from reaching the city. This year officials want to avoid a “bunker” mentality and accommodated nonviolent demonstrators. Consider avoiding the city during this period unless coming for events surrounding the WEF meeting.
