Despite its geographical centrality and its considerable economic involvement in Europe, Switzerland remains unusual in that it is neither a member of the Union or the European Economic Area. At a time when the Union is both expanding and seeking to develop its integration, the country constitutes a real anomaly amongst west European states.

Policy barriers to integration: in trade and economics generally, in financial matters, and in social provisions relating to the movement of people.

This unique volume will be of interest to students and scholars of European politics and European Union politics
