Project “Implementation of the restructuring of the asylum sector and organisational development”

State Secretariat for Migration

Key facts

With the referendum of 5 June 2016, it was decided to introduce the accelerated asylum procedure. The core element is the creation of federal asylum centres in which the concerned offices are brought together. In addition, the division of tasks between the Confederation and cantons/communes is undergoing major changes. The State Secretariat for Migration (SEM) has initiated a project that covers the restructuring of the entire State Secretariat. The target date for the introduction is 1 March 2019.
