The DDS are a research project aiming to edit key documents on Swiss foreign relations. The editors provide researchers and practitioners with official sources in printed and digitized form which are necessary to reconstruct and gain an understanding of the history of Swiss foreign policy.
The relevant documents are selected, edited, and annotated by a research group whose members are historians from Swiss universities.
The Online Database Dodis - in addition to the printed edition - allows for free access to a large number of digitized documents. Moreover, it contains a vast amount of information on people (Swiss and foreign) and organisations that were active in the field of foreign policy.
