Participation models

Involving affected people in the design and implementation of poverty reduction and prevention policies increases their effectiveness. What are these projects in Switzerland and abroad?



Successful and promising participation models in Switzerland and abroad are identified, appreciated and recommendations are developed.

Course of action

Within the framework of the FSIO project, project examples in Switzerland and abroad will be researched and evaluated. Of interest are, on the one hand, projects that encourage participation in the process of policy making and implementation and, on the other hand, initiatives that promote participatory competencies. The research project is characterized by the participation of people at risk of and affected by poverty in the research process (user involved research).

This project contributes to the following SDGs

  • 1: No poverty
  • 3: Good health and well-being
  • 10: Reduced inequalities
