Switzerland regularly reports hate crime data to ODIHR. Switzerland's Criminal Code does not contain hate crime provisions, although hate crimes are prosecuted under discrimination and hate speech provisions. As such, the data reported to ODIHR include cases of incitement to hatred and discrimination. Information on hate crimes is collected by the Federal Commission against Racism and the Statistical Office and published. The Federal Commission against Racism partners with the association 'humanrights.ch' in the Counselling Network for Victims of Racism, which continuously publishes yearly analytical reports.
The European Commission against Racism and Intolerance (ECRI) published relevant recommendations in its "Sixth report on Switzerland."
ODIHR observes that Switzerland has not reported on hate crimes separately from cases of hate speech or discrimination.
