This chapter provides an overview of the resistance to the ECtHR as it has appeared in Switzerland’s Federal Supreme Court, academia, and politics. It shows that, although harsh criticism has been expressed by judges, academics, and politicians, neither the executive, legislative, or judicial branch nor scholarship has taken a principally adverse attitude towards the ECHR system. However, Switzerland’s national conservative party, the Swiss People’s Party, currently the country’s largest political force, recently attempted to significantly cut back on the ECHR’s influence on the Swiss legal and political order. This proposal, which even could have forced Switzerland to withdraw from the ECHR, was clearly rejected by popular vote. The campaign showed that, while potential for far-reaching backlash against the ECtHR exists in Switzerland, there is an even broader alliance of staunch supporters of the European human rights system.
