Based on its experience, Switzerland is convinced that on the basis of a constructive dialogue between the requesting and the requested state, an appropriate solution can be found in each particular case. The solution needs to meet national and international expectations and be in line with the ideas put forward by the governments concerned. In doing so in the past, various programmes in the areas of health, education and good governance could be funded. When choosing such projects, inputs of the civil society in the country of origin are also taken into account. The experience acquired shows that there is no generally applicable solution and the mechanism of the restitution needs to be chosen on a case-by-case basis (no "one-size-fits-all" solution).
