The Institute of the Swiss Abroad is the name given to the research centre of the Foundation for the History of the Swiss Abroad.
It aims to conduct a policy of in-depth research projects based on the archives stored at Penthes, to establish a documentation centre based on the theme of Switzerland and its exchanges with the world, to ensure the publication of mainstream and more specialized works and through the dissemination of our biannual newsletter, the Lettre de Penthes, as well as the future creation of a database on Swiss migration throughout the ages.
Lectures are held several times a year, including book signings, concerts, screenings and other performances.
