Migration policy

Those who migrate depend on protection

Caritas Switzerland supports an open, humane migration policy in Switzerland that complies with human rights, makes use of opportunities and allows people to participate rather than exclude them. It advocates that Switzerland also speaks out internationally in support of migrants.

We are actively engaged in the following themes

  • A fair and humane asylum procedure
  • Dignified conditions for all types of residence status
  • A broad and targeted promotion of integration
  • Safe escape routes and legal migration routes
  • The right to family life
  • Decoupling of social assistance and migration law
