What’s happening at IFIL

For the first time in several years, IFIL is only offering one Study Trip in Summer 2016. So you might wonder: what is happening at IFIL? In short: we are doing great! No worries. Indeed though, we had to carefully manage our time resources in the last year, as the board was understaffed for a while. And now that we found awesome new talent, some reorganisation, as mentioned and seen …

We held our annual General Assembly on March 19th in Zurich. Thank you to all who attended!
