At a glance

Switzerland is characterized by the presence of multiple social groups and a diversity of affiliations. This diversity is enriching for society, but it can also create challenges. Questions relating to the acceptance, rejection and integration of certain groups may arise.

The survey on diversity and coexistence in Switzerland (VeS) aims to present a reliable picture of the issues raised by the coexistence of the different population groups currently living in the country. The findings provide information on the attitudes, opinions and perceptions of the population. Figures are presented in seven key areas that inform us - directly or indirectly - about aspects of diversity, racism and integration.
