- Switzerland, multilateralism and other celebrations in 2019
- What do they mean?
Multilateralism, Geneva Conventions and the International Labour Organization – what do they mean?
The challenges we face today – such as the fight against poverty, climate change and war – have a global dimension. In this context, the UN, the international organisations and international law play a key role. Switzerland is highly active in the international multilateral system. Switzerland is a state party to and the depositary of the Geneva Conventions, as well as a founding member and host state of the International Labour Organization.
