Living in Switzerland, surely you have heard  about the neighboring Liechtenstein - but how much do you know about the CH-LI relations?

Swiss Federal Department of Foreign Affairs on its website defines Switzerland-Liechtenstein relations to be ones that are "excellent, friendly" and "with traditionally close ties." It also points out that the two countries share the same fundamental values and have close cooperation on many fronts, including forming a common economic area after the Customs Treaty of 1923 as well as numerous work in bodies such as the United Nations .

The goal of this field study in Liechtenstein is to help attendees understand better the relations between the two neighboring countries, learning about the history as well as engaging in an interactive speaker conversation.

This event is a joint project between foraus St Gallen and Liechtenstein regional groups.

10:15-12:15 A 90min guided tour at Liechtenstein National Museum, followed by 30min free exploration time
