A recent study by the Zurich University of Applied Sciences (ZHAW) shows the geographic distribution of known radicalized jihadists across Switzerland. According to figures in the report the Lake Geneva region is a hotspot with significantly higher radicalisation rates than the rest of the country. The region’s overall rate of 2.7 radicalized inhabitants per 100,000 residents is 69% higher than the Swiss average of 1.6. French-speaking Switzerland is home to only 24% of the nation’s total population but 42% of Switzerland’s known jihadists. Men made up 89% of the known 130 jihadists studied.
