Integration Competence Centre (KOI)

The Integration Competence Centre (KOI) of the Kreuzlingen district was commissioned by the federal government, the canton and the fourteen municipalities of the district to improve coexistence between the native and immigrant population.

KOI informs private individuals and institutions about migration and integration issues and promotes networking between the actors. In the case of personal problems, support possibilities are pointed out and solution-oriented counselling is offered.
