Switzerland has been home to international organizations for more than a century. To date, it has concluded a “headquarters agreement” with 25 international organizations: 22 organizations have their headquarters in Geneva, two in Berne and one in Basel. 

In addition, nearly 250 non-governmental organizations which act as advisors to the United Nations are based in Switzerland.
