Ximpulse is a team of independent expert consultants. We work in developing and transition countries as well as Switzerland and the EU. We support stakeholders in reform and peace processes, often in conflict-affected and fragile contexts. Our core areas of expertise are constitution building and power-sharing, governance, access to justice and human rights as well as mediation and conflict transformation.

Ximpulse is the exclusive licensee of PolitExchange™ – the Competence Center of the Capital Region Switzerland for Governance Study Visits. Through PolitExchange we design, organise and facilitate learning events that aim to make the Swiss governance experience visible and tangible – as a source of inspiration for reflection and reforms.
