Council of the Swiss Abroad

Recognized mouthpiece of the Fifth Switzerland

The Council of the Swiss Abroad (CSA) represents the interests of all Swiss abroad vis-à-vis the authorities and the public in Switzerland. It is therefore often referred to in the media as the "Parliament of the Fifth Switzerland". He is responsible for numerous important achievements in favour of the Fifth Switzerland.

The CSA meets twice a year in Switzerland for an all-day meeting to discuss important issues relating to the policy of the Swiss Abroad and to comment on current issues from the point of view of the Fifth Switzerland. The Council meets every spring and at the annual Congress of the Swiss Abroad in late summer. Between sessions, the Board of Directors and the Secretariat take care of day-to-day business.

Numerous successes

The achievements in the implementation of which the CSA has played a decisive role are numerous: the anchoring of the Swiss abroad in the Federal Constitution (Art. 40), the preservation of the AHV/IV volunteers, the safeguarding of their livelihood through the Solidarity Fund, several civil rights revisions, the information of the Swiss abroad ("Swiss Review"), the promotion of the education of young Swiss abroad or the introduction of the right to vote and vote by letter deserve to be listed as the main points. It is also thanks to the work of the CSA that the presence of the Fifth Switzerland in its home country has been significantly increased over the years.
