Since its creation in 1995, the IDE has developed multiple partnerships over the course of its training and awareness raising activities.

The IDE maintains regular contact with the representatives of executive, legal and academic national/international authorities, as well as with UN agencies and a number of NGOs.

In Switzerland, the IDE was one of the founding members of the Child Rights Network Switzerland.

The IDE hosts the headquarters of the Veillard-Cybulski Fund Association, which supports innovative work in the field of care for troubled youth, and awards the Veillard-Cybulski award.

The Sarah Oberson Foundation, which organizes training days to inform the public in Western Switzerland to children’s suffering, is also hosted by the IDE.
