Switzerland/ 3.4 International cultural co-operation  

3.4.3 European / international actors and programmes

Depending on the issue, the Federal Department of Foreign Affairs and / or the Federal Office of Culture represents Switzerland in international organisations like UNESCO or the Council of Europe.

As a non-member state of the EU, Switzerland has limited access to European programmes. Swiss participation on the Creative Europe programme is pending. The cantons are principally responsible for cross-border cooperation within the framework of the Interreg-programmes of the EU or the Euregios.
