foraus - Swiss Forum on Foreign Policy
foraus (Forum Aussenpolitik - Forum de politique étrangère - Swiss Forum on Foreign Policy) generates independent, high quality recommendations for Swiss foreign policy decision makers and the public, thereby bridging the gap between academia and politics. Its non-partisan approach aims to promote an open dialogue and informed decision-making on all aspects of Swiss foreign policy. foraus is a grassroots organisation that is founded on bottom-up principles. Its success as a think tank is based on its members’ voluntary commitment. Members are primarily graduates and young professionals who are active in a nationwide network of young researchers and foreign policy enthusiasts. The think tank was founded in 2009 in Bern, Switzerland. Today, the two offices in Zürich and Geneva host more than 10 employees.
