International collaboration

Switzerland’s migration foreign policy is based on three key principles:

  • Global approach:
    Migration is a global phenomenon generating both risks and opportunities.
  • Partnership approach:
    The risk and opportunities presented by migration should be addressed in collaboration with the countries of origin, transit and destination.
  • Whole-of-government approach:
    The challenge of migration calls for coherent action by the different departments within the federal administration.
