Asia Society Switzerland is committed to exploring Asia's role in a multilateral world and to advancing the dialogue and strengthening partnerships among individuals and institutions in Switzerland and Asia. Across the fields of arts, culture, education and policy, we provide insights, promote collaboration and contribute to a deeper understanding of the most dynamic and fastest-growing region in the world.

Asia Society Switzerland is an independent Swiss foundation. We are a member of the global Asia Society family. Founded in 1956 in New York, Asia Society has developed into a thought leader on Asian issues, and a vibrant community of decision makers around the world. There are 13 independent centers spread across four continents – New York, Houston, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Washington D.C., Hong Kong, Shanghai, Manila, Mumbai, Seoul, Sydney, Tokyo and Zurich.

As the first Center in Europe, Asia Society Switzerland – founded in 2016 – provides a unique opportunity to become part of this global community, and to contribute to a meaningful dialogue that could shape our future.
