Since 2004, up to 20 members of the Swiss Armed Forces have supported the EUFOR ALTHEA mission in Bosnia and Herzegovina in liaison and observation teams (LOT). They are stationed at well-known or potential hot spots and work in close collaboration with the local population, local authorities and international organisations working in the same region. The teams gather and pass on information to EUFOR headquarters for the purpose of assessing the nationwide security situation and compiling threat assessments. As part of the mission, a mobile training team of up to six Swiss small arms and ammunition specialists are training the armed forces of Bosnia and Herzegovina in the field of ammunition and weapons management.
Interested women and men can apply to the SWISSINT Competence Centre for a peace-promoting mission abroad within the framework of the Swiss Armed Forces. We are looking for experts from a wide variety of professions. The basic requirements differ depending on the mission and type of operation.
