You think of the world neutral and probably Switzerland will pop up in your mind. A unique country where things happen on time and supposedly people are the happiest. But, is there a downside to being the happiest country? Lack of diversity?
Of the two million foreigners in Switzerland, 1.6 million are of European origin. “Probably the biggest challenge facing migrants is integrating into Swiss living,” Zurich resident and expat, Cynthia Luna, told me. “The Swiss are a culturally reserved and risk-averse people. Newcomers are unaware of the numerous unspoken codes of conduct and will not know if they made a social faux pas.”
