swissinfo and Switzerland's changing religious landscape

swissinfo/Swiss Radio International (SRI) takes a closer look at Switzerland's changing religious landscape. Starting today, a special dossier in English can be accessed providing a snapshot of faith in Switzerland in the 21st century.

Bern, 4 September 2007

Fewer and fewer people adhere to organised religion in the western world. Switzerland is no exception, with a rising number claiming to have no religious affiliation. But although church attendance is falling, religion has become a factor ahead of the federal elections, especially with an increasingly large and more visible Muslim population. swissinfo's special dossier shows how the churches are adapting to changes in Swiss society.
