The annual «Security» survey serves to determine trends in the formation of opinion on foreign, security and defense policy in Switzerland. It is based on representative surveys of the Swiss electorate, carried out on an annual basis. Apart from core questions always included or asked at irregular intervals, questions about current issues of security policy are annually included as well. In 2017, special attention was paid to information channels on security policy and social media communication as well as to the fighting of extremism and terrorism and to changes in travel behaviour in response to terrorist attacks.
