The Swiss Confederation is a constitutional republic with a federal structure. Legislative authority resides in a bicameral parliament (Federal Assembly). Federal Assembly elections are considered free and fair. Parliament elects the executive leadership every four years. The government had mechanisms in place to identify, investigate, prosecute, and punish officials who may commit human rights abuses, engage in corruption, or both.

The overall score indicates that there are medium risks of potential human rights violations in this country. This may also include the tourism sector. Relevant risks for the tourism sector are, e.g.:
  • Low enforcement efforts on labor trafficking
  • Threats of discrimination of women and older persons in the workplace
  • Cases of systemic racism against individuals of African descent
  • Threats of discrimination against members of national, racial, and ethnic minority groups as well as against LGBTQI+ persons

For better comparability, we have converted the original scores of the indices to a uniform scale of 1-100 (1 most negative, 100 most positive).

In the following table you find these recalculated values and the original score in brackets behind them.

The Overall Score is the geometric mean of all converted values for each country. It is subcategorized in five risk categories with colour gradations that can be seen in the map.
