The recognized mouthpiece of the Swiss living abroad

The Council of the Swiss Abroad (CSA) represents the interests of Swiss expatriates before the authorities and public opinion in Switzerland. This is why the media call it the 'Parliament of the Fifth Switzerland'. It has numerous major achievements for the Swiss Abroad to its credit.

The CSA gathers in Switzerland twice a year for a day-long meeting to discuss important matters concerning the Swiss abroad and to voice an opinion on current affairs on behalf of the Fifth Switzerland. The Council meets regularly in the spring as well as in late summer within the framework of the Swiss Abroad Congress. Between sessions, routine business is dealt with by the Executive Board and the administration team.
