explains in simple language how Switzerland works and ticks.

The knowledge is provided by specialists, organisations and government agencies.
Linguistically competent people translate the content.
We make it available on migraweb.ch.


Our mission   

Initial situation

Switzerland is tough! A geographically, politically and economically landlocked country with four official national languages and countless dialects, divided into 26 cantons that produce over 2100 municipalities - each with its own written and unwritten laws and rules.

This construct presents us all with challenges from time to time that make us ask:

- how does this work?
- what do i have to do to...?
- wtf (what the federalism)?

What is feasible with enough time, patience or advice becomes an insurmountable hurdle without sufficient language skills.


Our mission

migraweb.ch explains in simple language how Switzerland works.
The texts on migraweb.ch are informative, neutral and translated into several languages.

Users are given low-threshold access to information relevant to everyday life.
The possibility of accessing this knowledge independently simplifies complex everyday life.

The number of visits to the authorities and the amount of time they take are reduced.
This leads to a relief in the workload on both sides of the counter/telephone/mail accounts.

How we achieve it

Before the new migraweb.ch is up and running as an information platform, there are only four things left to do:

1 - find out how Switzerland works
2 - convert this knowledge into simple texts (de/en)
3 - translate these texts (fr/es/pt/ar/sh/tr/sq/ln/it/fa/
sw/so/ta/ru/am/ti/ro/...)
4 - ensure the financing of migraweb.ch

We cannot do this alone and depend on your help.

No problem, we can still use your help!

In order to rebuild migraweb.ch and keep it running, costs are incurred for

- PCs, servers, domains, backups, toner and all that technical stuff
- Office rent and consumables
- coffee
- staff costs

migraweb is a non-commercial association, but it is still part of the commercial Swiss economy and has running costs.

Unfortunately, we don't have any other form of support for you at the moment.
Until then, how about telling as many people as possible about migraweb?
