The Fifth Switzerland

The Auslandschweizer-Organisation (Organisation of the Swiss abroad (OSA), founded in 1916, informs Swiss citizens living abroad about actuality in Switzerland.

The organisation is in contact with official Swiss representations, Swiss clubs and societies throughout the world,  Swiss media and members of the Swiss Parliament.

The organisation publishes a magazine, a newsletter and an information bulletin.

The De Auslandschweizerrat (Council of the Swiss Abroad, CSA) represents the interests of expatriates in Switzerland.

That is why the media call it the ‘Parliament of the Fifth Switzerland’.
