Perception of Inclusion and Experiences of Minority Groups in the Swiss Armed Forces
One way to find out in what way these diversity measures affect the inclusion and equal treatment of minority groups is to ask the affected persons themselves. This study is based on qualitative interviews with individuals and focus-groups that evaluate the perspective of different minority groups in the SAF and pursues the following questions: What are their attitudes towards the existing HR-policies and military guidelines which regulate the cohabitation and collaboration in heterogeneous groups? What is their opinion towards the importance of diversity management as an educational element in their military education cycle? Do they feel integrated, included and given equal opportunities? Where do they see potential for improvement?
