It receives foreign visitors and organizes foreign travel for the President, Vice-President and all other members of the Constitutional Court. The main goal of these visits is the constructive and professional exchange with other constitutional judges, similar institutions, or other Supreme Courts. In addition, the Protocol department organizes the participation in bilateral and multilateral conferences as well as meetings in Austria and abroad. These opportunities for direct and intensive exchanges of experience and opinion are increasingly important in our digitalised and globalised world.
Furthermore, the department for International Affairs and Protocol is responsible for the preparation of public events and official visits to the Constitutional Court.
