Europe watches Swiss immigration vote
8 February 2014 Last updated at 08:47 GMT
Immigration has long been a controversial and emotive issue in Switzerland, and voters are set go to the polls on Sunday in a nationwide referendum.
They will decide whether the country should abandon its free movement of people treaty with the European Union and introduce strict quotas for foreign workers.
Switzerland is not a member of the EU, but has adopted large sections of EU policy.
