Switzerland joined UNESCO on January 28, 1949. It works particularly closely with the Organization in the field of education. For example, Switzerland is the home base of the International Bureau of Education (IBE), which is part of UNESCO's Education Sector, and gives it considerable financial support.

The IBE's role is to carry out scientific research in the educational field and serve as a coordinating centre for institutions and societies concerned with education.
