Switzerland in the European Research Area: Integration Without Legislation

Published in Schweizerische Zeitschrift für Politikwissenschaft. 2009, vol. 15, no. 4, p. 629-651
Abstract From the point of view of modes of governance and constellations of interdependence, EU research policy offers ideal conditions for the flexible inclusion of non-member states: it is based on transgovernmental coordination through policy networks rather than supranational legislation, it follows scientific rather than political imperatives, and cooperation is in the interest of both the EU and of Switzerland. This article analy- ses the degree to which these factors have allowed for Switzerland’s inclusion into the regulatory and organisational aspects of EU research policy, and highlights the limits of such flexible sectoral integration.
