Foreign and security policy – a targeted partnership

Switzerland and the European Union conduct a close dialogue on their shared foreign policy concerns. The EU has shown interest in Switzerland’s constructive approach to foreign policy. Switzerland also makes substantial contributions through its participation in the EU’s peace promotion missions.

Development and humanitarian aid – a spirit of active cooperation

Switzerland and the EU are committed to the eradication of poverty in the world and the promotion of stability and prosperity in Europe and well beyond its borders. This means they can work together to improve the reach and effectiveness of their policies and activities in the areas of development and humanitarian aid.
