Foreign Correspondents

Cooperation with foreign correspondents in selected countries allows the Department for Foreign and International Social Law to extend the limited number of countries represented at the Institute and, by giving attention to additional countries, to broaden its research focus. The correspondents’ task is to provide reliable information on the social security law of their countries and to serve as contact points for questions on social law arising in the context of the departmental research activities. In turn, the Institute is committed to assisting the correspondents in their own research activities, in particular by facilitating research stays at the Institute.
