The new series, A Panorama of Swiss Society, is published by the Federal Statistical Office (FSO) and the Universities of Neuchâtel and Fribourg and is the joint initiative of official statistics and social science research in the universities. It is the continuation of the previous Swiss Social Report. The aim of the new series is to make important findings on key socio-political topics and fundamental trends in Swiss society accessible for public interest.
This first edition of A Panorama of Swiss Society deals with the topics of migration, integration and participation. Specialists, from different disciplines, present in-depth analyses of selected trends, which they seek to interpret and explain. They examine migration backgrounds, characteristics and circumstances from various angles that concern both international and internal migration, integration processes and changes that effect society as a whole.
