Attitudes against Foreigners in Switzerland

In a new survey we asked a representative sample of the Swiss population the degree they felt threatened by a series of neighbours. About a third reported no threat by any kind of immigrant neighbour we asked. Another third of the respondents indicted only mild discomfort, while the remaining third indicated considerable degrees of threat.

The stated threat by immigrants from the European Union was negligible and roughly on par with that by people from another region in Switzerland. By contrast, considerably more threat was reported for potential neighbours from South-Eastern Europe (Albania, Kosovo, Turkey).
