Employment, health and housing


Discrimination in the workplace is a reality.

It is caused by people attributing characteristics to others on the basis of their national, ethnic, cultural or religious origin.

Taking concrete measures at all stages of employment can eliminate this kind of discrimination.


Everyone living in Switzerland has the right to adequate healthcare.

Unequal opportunities and incidences of discrimination hinder people’s access to healthcare and can make it difficult to create a healthy work environment.



It is not unusual for people to be confronted with mechanisms of exclusion and discrimination on the basis of their origin, skin colour or nationality when trying to find somewhere to stay.

This not only violates the rights of those in question, but also impacts both the residential environment and neighbourhood development.
