Swiss Asylum Symposium

The Swiss Asylum Symposium

The Asylum Symposium brings together about 350 actors involved in the field of asylum and migration and offers them a platform for open and objective dialogue.

As the most important national symposium in the field of asylum and migration, the Swiss Asylum Symposium has gained a reputation among experts as a place for dialogue and exchange with other professionals outside their day-to-day work environment.

The event is designed for experts and stakeholders active in the fields of administration, civil society, politics, aid agencies, NGOs, legal professions, science and the media.

High-profile speakers from Switzerland and Europe

Each asylum symposium lasts one and a half days and is attended by high-profile speakers from Switzerland and Europe. In addition to the lectures, plenary discussions and workshops contribute to the exchange. The event is conducted in German and French.

The next Swiss Asylum Symposium will take place 4-5 February 2021. Online registrations open in August 2020.

Registration and detailed information on the Swiss Asylum Symposium will only be posted on our German and French websites.
