Liaison officers for the Cantons

In the field of foreign policy, the cantons work together with the Confederation in areas that affect the competence or crucial interests of the cantons. (Art. 55 of the Federal Constitution). The main plank of participation is the duty of mutual information on the part of the Confederation and the cantons (BGMK). The cantonal information officers perform this task in connection with European integration; they work to a mandate from the Conference of Cantonal Governments.
