Reception of delegations

International delegations regularly visit our Institute, mostly as part of short study trips to Switzerland. The Institute devises special courses for them which are tailored to their needs and interests. Popular subjects include Switzerland’s political system, the roles of the Confederation, cantons and municipalities, cooperation, management of cultural diversity, safeguarding human rights, protection of minorities, the different forms of democracy and fiscal federalism.

All delegation visits and customised courses are organised on request. Generally charged by the hour, the fee varies depending on the type of work and personnel involved.

IFF sponsors and partners from developing and transition countries benefit from preferential rates.
