17,000 forced marriages in Switzerland

It doesn't say how many of these happen among Muslims, but my guess would be most:

According to Lathan Suntharalingam, a [Swiss] local politician campaigning against [forced] marriages, it is an integration problem which can't be solved through "multicultural do-gooding". […] There is evidence that such unions are taking place in Switzerland. The only study on the issue so far, by the Surgir foundation in Lausanne in 2006, estimates that there are around 17,000 forced marriages in the country. A third of those involved are under 18 years old, and the practice also affects men as well as women, Surgir found.
