The Special Rapporteur observed two underlying causes for the dynamic of racism and xenophobia in Switzerland: deep-rooted cultural resistance within Swiss society to the multiculturalization process, especially where persons of South-Eastern European and non-European origin are concerned, and the growing prevalence of racist and xenophobic stances in political programmes and discourse, particularly during elections and various votes. Mission to Switzerland [9-13 January 2006].
