A close neighbour of the EU but not a member state, a mid-sized economy but a global competitiveness and innovation leader, a centre for international cooperation but neutral – Switzerland has a unique position in many regards.
Famous for its federalism and direct democracy, but what are Switzerland's priorities and strategies on the international stage? Do Switzerland’s reactions to the conflict in Ukraine affect its neutrality? And how does the country manage itsmultifaceted political, economic and cultural relations with both the UK and the EU?
These questions and more will be discussed at our event in Manchester on Wednesday 15 June, being held as part of our #WeAreSwitzerland tour of the UK.
