The Federal Department of Justice and Police has a wide range of responsabilities. It deals with socio-political issues such as the co-existence of Swiss and foreign nationals, asylum matters, internal security and the fight against crime. Marital status and citizenship issues are also just as much part of the FDJP's brief as corporate governance, gaming supervision, or the drafting of codes and instruments for international legal assistance and police cooperation.
