A landlocked, mountainous country in central Europe, Switzerland has enjoyed centuries of political neutrality and relative peace. One of Europe’s oldest democracies, its various governments over time have been seen as some of the world’s most stable and, though not formally a member of the European Union, it enjoys strong ties with neighbouring States. Although home to a number of the UN's human rights mechanisms, the country's human rights record has not been without criticism, most notably regarding discrimination towards its minorities.
